Both clubs are searching for a compromise and Olivier Giroud looks likely to move to Dortmund on a six-month loan, while Aubameyang would be reunited with Henrikh Mkhitaryan if he joins Arsenal.

But the Gabon global, who was in his auto, opted to avoid answering the question and drove away.

New Arsenal man Henrikh Mkhitaryan sent fans into meltdown after appearing to welcome former Borussia Dortmund teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to the club during his social media unveiling.

Aubameyang fuelled speculation he was on his way to Arsenal yesterday by packing up his auto with boxes.

Arsenal's initial bid of £43m was rejected by the German club as they are holding out for a fee in the range of £55m to £60m, which is what they were being offered by a top Chinese side before Wenger entered the race.

Rocket Lab had counted all the way down to T-minus 2 seconds, when Beck says Electron automatically aborted. The company hopes to begin commercial launches next year and eventually launch one rocket every week.

He said: "We are not close to doing a deal for Aubameyang or anybody else".

"You never know how close they [negotiations] are". These are the kind of things - at the moment, is one of the possible movements but we have other things in mind as well. We have plenty of opportunities and the final decision is not made.

The 28-year-old was left out of the Dortmund squad for Friday's 1-1 draw at Hertha Berlin, with question marks over his dedication.

But Dortmund boss Peter Stoger has hinted the striker could be recalled.

"Today is Wednesday and everything is fine by me", said Stoger. "It's a great, satisfying night for us because we managed to beat a strong team and I felt that in January we paid a heavy price for uncertainty that was existing in our dressing room".
