Anthony Modeste would be interested in joining Borussia Dortmund to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to the striker's agent.

Arsenal fans, finally, have something to smile about.

Regardless, it seems that the Gabon worldwide has already arrived at the club's training ground sometime earlier today to complete his move to the North London side.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could be forced to let French striker Olivier Giroud, 31, join Chelsea in order to sign Borussia Dortmund's Gabon global forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, 28.

Chelsea have supposedly offered Arsenal the opportunity to swap Olivier Giroud foar David Luiz, which would in turn free up Michy Batshuayi and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to move also.

Arsenal have been on Aubameyag's trail since Alexis Sanchez's move to Manchester United became inevitable and the Gunners' wanted someone with a pedigree to score lots of goals for them.

After months of speculation and interest from several clubs across Europe, the speedy forward is finally set to leave Signal Iduna Park for the Emirates stadium in North London. Reports in Germany suggest a deal was settled in principle over the weekend for a player who moved to Dortmund in 2013 and has proved prolific, if controversial at times, ever since. Even though he is down the pecking order at Chelsea he has a much better record that Llorente, who at 32-years-of-age looks no better than Vincent Janssen.

Antonio Conte's side are absolutely determined on landing a top target-man by the end of the transfer deadline day.

David explains the entire situation clearly.

The former Manchester City star demanded a three-and-a-half-year contract and big wages, which led to Chelsea abandoning the deal. Dzeko is now with Roma.

The likes of Andy Carroll, Peter Crouch, Christian Benteke and Edin Dzeko have all been linked with moves to Stamford Bridge this month, but any deal has failed to materialise.

Michy Batshuayi's future however still remains highly uncertain.
