Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has spoken strongly about Arsenal’s unwillingesss to break the bank to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who would become the club’s top earner according to a report from German football expert Lee Price.
“You have not to forget that we have as well financial restrictions from the banks because we have built the stadium,” said Wenger.
“If you cannot afford, you have to say ‘no, sorry, can’t do that’. After that, we have to spend the money in the most intelligent way we can on the transfer market that has become a bit out of control.”
But this hasn’t stop fan excitement over the club’s deal for the Gabonese star, particularly after Henrikh Mkhitaryan was reported to have said “yo Pierre, do you wanna come here?” at his official unveilling.
There have been other transfer conspiracy theories, including that the Gabon international is tweeting in code, with a hint to Arsenal, and that, according to a report from the Daily Star, Aubameyang will don Thierry Henry’s famous No. 14 jersey.
Incredibly, a photo of the forward packing boxes into his car went viral, while the North London club’s travelling party who are in Dortmund were spotted admiring his personalised Porsche. Although, the Daily Mirror report the boxes were merely gear from his personal sponsor.
