Arsenal fans are convinced Henrikh Mkhitaryan has revealed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s transfer is done.
Has Henrikh Mkhitaryan let slip about Aubameyang’s arrival?
Arsenal have completed the signing of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Gunners fans are convinced their latest recruit has accidentally let slip that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s transfer is complete.
Talks intensified over the weekend as Arsenal’s chief executive Ivan Gazidis travelled to Germany in an attempt to conclude a deal for the Borussia Dortmund forward.
The Bundesliga club are reportedly demanding £60 million for Aubameyang and are also keen on including on loan Olivier Giroud as part of the deal.
A transfer fee has not been finalised between the two clubs but it’s been reported that the striker has already agreed to join Arsenal.
Mkhitaryan, meanwhile, completed his switch to north London on Monday evening as part of the deal which saw Alexis Sanchez head to Manchester United, and Arsenal fans, with bat-like hearing, are claiming that Mkhitaryan revealed Aubameyang’s transfer in his behind-the-scenes unveiling video.
At around the one minute, ten second mark in a Youtube clip, Arsenal fans are claiming that Mkhitaryan is saying: ‘Pierre, do you want to come out here?’
It’s not completely clear what Mkhitaryan says due to the music, but some Arsenal fans claim they have heard enough and are convinced that Aubameyang is heading to the Emirates Stadium.
