Borussia Dortmund have made it clear they will not entertain a swap deal involving Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Olivier Giroud.
The Bundesliga club is keen on Giroud as a replacement for Aubameyang, who has held talks over a move to the Emirates.
But according to RMC Sport, they have warned the Gunners that the two deals have no bearing on each other.
Arsenal are hopeful of completing a deal for Aubameyang as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez.
The Gabon striker’s agent has jetted to London in a bid to seal his switch to Arsenal and it is believed that personal terms have already been agreed.
Arsene Wenger has made it clear he would not let Sanchez leave, until he has secured a replacement.
