Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Dortmund celebrates after scoring his team's second goal during the DFB Cup final match between Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund at Olympiastadion on May 27, 2017 in Berlin, Germany.
With Theo Walcott arriving on Merseyside to complete his medical, Alexis Sanchez inching towards a move to Manchester United, and Olivier Giroud now offered to Borussia Dortmund, there is an attacking revolution taking place at Arsenal.
A deal for Aubameyang would also depend on Arsenal agreeing a transfer fee with Dortmund, who are reportedly asking for £55 million, but the club are confident that the player himself is willing to move to London.
The proceeds from the 28-year-old's sale, which could rise to £25m with add-ons, will go towards Arsenal's efforts to sign Brazilian winger Malcom from Bordeaux with further meetings scheduled with the players representatives this week.
With the Gabon worldwide now determined to leave Dortmund this month, Bild suggest a move is now seems "only a matter of time", adding the only major interested party is Arsenal.
But with Manchester United leading the race for Sanchez, it looks like former Borussia Dortmund man Henrikh Mkhitaryan could move in the opposite direction.

Aubameyang was left out of Dortmund's matchday squad to face Wolfsburg on Sunday, increasing speculation he was destined to join the Gunners this month.
Once again, Aubameyang has been on fire in front of goal for the Bundesliga club.
"I would lie if I said it was just a pure tactical decision", he said.
But it now appears that he may have played his last game for the German club after Arsenal began discussions regarding a January switch.
"If Sanchez had two years left on his contract you'd have to pay Arsenal £75m to £80m and him £200,000 to £250,000 a week".
