Arsenal tabled a whopping €50 million (£41.9 million) offer for Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang over the summer but the bid was rejected, according to German newspaper Bild.
The Gabon international has reinvented himself from a flying winger into one of the world’s most-dangerous centre forwards during his time in the Bundesliga.

Aubameyang has been in blistering goalscoring form since joining Dortmund from French club Saint Etienne and has already struck 15 league goals in 12 outings this season.
The African attacker is being linked with a move to some of Europe’s biggest clubs, with Real Madrid believed to be major suitors of the 27-year-old.
However, the latest report suggests that Arsene Wenger’s men tabled a massive offer in the summer in an attempt to bring Aubameyang to the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal fans have been calling out for the club to sign a world-class forward for a number of transfer windows, with the North London outfit turning Alexis Sanchez into a striker this season with excellent results.
The Gunners also signed Lucas Perez over the summer in a bid to strengthen Wenger’s options in the final third.
