Stoger revealed on Thursday that he had spoken with the striker and things appeared to have been cleared up, but later that day Aubameyang was left off the squad list for Friday's trip to Hertha Berlin - sporting director Michael Zorc suggesting he was not entirely focused.

Arsene Wenger spoke about the scenario, and claimed if there was a move on the cards for Aubameyang, Giroud may move - but "if" was the key word.

Speaking via Dortmund's media director, Zorc issued the following statement: "We feel it is disrespectful to speak about players from other teams".

Arsenal want Aubameyang as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, who is on the verge of leaving the Emirates for a new challenge with Manchester United.

Arsenal are growing increasingly confident of securing the signing of both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and his former Borussia Dortmund teammate Henrikh Mkhitaryan, with both players agreeing personal terms with the North London outfit, according to Goal.

Malcom is unsettled with his future up in the air and is keen to play under Wenger, but with Bordeaux, who find themselves a disappointing 13th in the Ligue 1 table, wanting to keep one of their star names it would seem a January transfer is unworkable. The striker was suspended by the club for disciplinary reasons and has also been linked with a move to Premier League side Arsenal this month.

Wenger added: "I've worked on transfers for 30 years, so (I know) it is likely to happen". He certainly appreciated the quality of our game and the way we play football. I'd be informed about changes, and he's part of my plans.

He went on to speak about how the move his progressing, stating that the deal is not imminent.
