Arsenal‘s deal to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund is in danger of being postponed until the summer, according to reports in Germany.
The Gunners stepped up talks with Dortmund over a move for the 28-year-old last weekend but have failed to reach an agreement so far.
Aubameyang is reportedly keen on making the switch to Arsene Wenger‘s side, while Dortmund are open to selling the striker.
But according to Bild, the transfer is in danger of falling apart and Dortmund have now issued an ultimatum to Arsenal.
The report claims that the Gunners are over €15 million (£13m) short of Dortmund’s €70m (£61m) valuation.
And Dortmund have informed Arsenal that they must act quickly by submitting a new offer or run the risk of losing out on the striker.
Bild also report that behind the scenes, Dortmund’s hierarchy are already working on a way to reintegrate Aubameyang back into the team and ease the anger from supporters towards the player.
Dortmund coach Peter Stoger has publicly praised Aubameyang’s performances in training this week and is now ready to include the forward in his squad to face Freiburg on Saturday.
