  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – Click the right arrow above to see all the latest Arsenal transfer news

However, the German club are still holding out for a fee in excess of £53m, and this could prolong the deal until the final days of the winter transfer window, though Arsenal are confident of striking a deal.

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Arsenal are in negotiations to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but conceded the Gunners aren't close to a deal for the Borussia Dortmund striker.

The BBC reported on Wednesday that a second Arsenal bid for Aubameyang - believed to be worth £43.64m - was immediately turned down by the Bundesliga side.

The government on Wednesday unveiled to the media, including NHK, a pre-fab immigration facility near its border with Bangladesh. It was not possible to independently verify the accounts as Myanmar has heavily restricted access to the area.

Aubameyang has been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates, while Olivier Giroud could head to Dortmund as part of a possible swap deal.

Speaking yesterday, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was asked if he was confident of completing a deal for Aubameyang and replied: "Confident or not confident, I don't know".

The deal would break Arsenal's record transfer fee, which is now the £45m they paid to Lyon for striker Alexandre Lacazette in the summer. Arsenal, on the other hand, are in talks to sign a 30-goal striker in Aubameyang and Wenger's trust in Lacazette and Welbeck could prove vital for Giroud's future at the club.

By contrast, Pompeo said, the United States' goal is to prevent that day for as long as possible. "That increases the risk to America", Pompeo said.

Once again coming through criticism to produce, Wenger even joked that "somebody once told me that at Arsenal you are never more than five minutes away from a crisis".

Dortmund have already rejected two bids from Arsenal and have set the asking price at €70m for the 28-year-old striker, who has been angling for a move since last summer.

"We have plenty of opportunities in different positions, you know, so the final decision is not made".
