Borussia Dortmund are listening to offers for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Arsenal have emerged as one of the options for the Gabonese star.

The Borussia Dortmund marksman would be coming in to replace Alexis Sanchez, who is expected to join one of the Manchester giants before the transfer window shuts.

Arsenal also like Bordeaux's £45m-rated hitman Malcom but Aubameyang is Arsenal's priority and they would not sign both.

The Telegraph's Matt Law reported the potential sale of Alexis Sanchez could influence a move for Aubameyang, who was brought to Dortmund by Arsenal's new head of scouting, Sven Mislintat.

Boss Arsene Wenger looks certain to bid for the prolific Gabon global to ease the pain of losing Alexis Sanchez.

United could tie up a deal on Monday, says the Daily Star - after secretly working on a deal to gazump rivals Manchester City for the past nine months.

In an interesting development, current Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud could move in the opposite direction.

"What is going on now is not to be tolerated by the club. It is clear it can not go on like this", Zorc said.

Even with Arsenal linked to Aubameyang and Malcom, I won't be anxious until Wenger or their board goes.

"That leads me to believe at this moment in time that it's not so important to him and that he's not so focused".

"It brings unease into the team and that's not good", Zorc added.

The manager continues to see a pathway at Tottenham for Edwards, who is so talented that he has acquired the nickname "Mini Messi" at the club.

Pochettino has come to accept that Edwards is at a stage of his development where he needs to experience regular senior football, and he decided a loan to the Championship was the ideal short-term solution.
