Spanish giants, Real Madrid are set to hijack Arsenal bid to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund.
A top official at the German Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund told Don Balon that Arsenal could face a late competition from Real Madrid after club president Florentino Perez decided an immediate fix is required for the team’s goalscoring problems.
Perez is ready to make €70 million available now to beat Arsenal to the capture of Aubameyang, who has long held a dream of playing at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Meanwhile, Premier League Champions, Chelsea are weighing up a move for Roma left-back Emerson Palmieri as an alternative option to Juventus’s Alex Sandro.
Antonio Conto has been in the hunt for a new left-sided defender in the January transfer window and have long held an interest in Alex Sandro.
Emerson’s representatives had talks with Chelsea last week while they were in London to hold discussions with Arsenal regarding the Gunners’ interest in signing Malcom from Bordeaux.
