Arsenal have bid for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang rejected by Borussia Dortmund

Arsene Wenger

But Dortmund boss Peter Stoger has suggested that the 28-year-old could return to the team to face Freiburg on Saturday with a move to Arsenal far from certain.

Aubameyang's future has been a subject of speculation ever since the forward has demanded to leave Dortmund almost a year ago.

An Arsenal delegation including chief executive Ivan Gazidis, chief scout Sven Mislintat and contract negotiator Huss Fahmy have been in Dortmund for talks but no deal has been agreed. His dream has been to play for Real Madrid, but unfortunately, it looks that dream won't be fulfilled anytime soon.

Reports earlier today claimed Arsenal offered in excess of £50m, but under £52.7m, with the offer coming somewhere in between, which has now been rejected.

United have upped Sanchez's weekly wages to the region of £400,000-a-week, while Arsenal were reluctant to pay the stratospheric figures demanded by the forward.

Arsenal's club officials have been in Germany as they attempt to negotiate a deal.

But after the match Arsenal's pursuit of Aubameyang was the hottest topic of conversation, though Wenger says they deal has not progressed despite talks. The new offer would eclipse the £44 million that they paid Lyons for Alexandre Lacazette in July.

Arsene Wenger praised his side for showing a "response" to "the uncertainty that was existing in our dressing room", as he reached a third League Cup final of his career, after Arsenal's 2-1 comeback win over Chelsea. Giroud had firm offers from clubs in the summer, especially from Everton, but chose to stay put and compete for a place at Arsenal. The completion of the Sanchez deal was finally announced on Monday, with Mkhitaryan moving the other way after falling out of favour with Jose Mourinho at United.
