Arsene Wenger wants more signings this month – even if he lands Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Arsenal are closing in on a deal for the Gabon star despite Wenger claiming the move it not close.

Arsenal chiefs have been in Germany this week trying to make a breakthrough.

Dortmund are keen to get a replacement in before signing off on the sale, with Olivier Giroud their No 1 target.

The Gunners have snapped up Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Manchester United in the deal to send Alexis Sanchez the other way, but Wenger is eyeing more deals this month.

“We have other things in mind as well and we have plenty of opportunities in different positions,” he said.

“We can buy players. We are busy on all fronts, so overall I think we are open-minded. Every opportunity we have to strengthen our squad, we’ll take.”
