Arsenal line up second swap deal

With Henrikh Mkhitaryan set to arrive at Arsenal in exchange for Alexis Sanchez, Arsene Wenger is plotting his second swap deal of the January transfer window to land Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang . There are reports that the Gunners boss is prepared to offer Olivier Giroud in part-exchange for Aubameyang, rather than pay Dortmund’s £70 million asking price.

Giroud has been forced to accept a bit-part role at Arsenal this season and would presumably be open to the idea of a new challenge. Aubameyang was left out of the Dortmund team for the second week running as Peter Stoger’s side were held to a 1-1 draw at Hertha Berlin on Friday night.
