As this hectic winter transfer window sprints toward the deadline, the slow-developing and oft-confusing Aubameyang-to-Arsenal story hit hyperdrive this morning when Aubameyang was spotted arriving at Dortmund airport.

Following this news, 30,000+ Arsenal fans kept their eyes on the skies as a private jet from Dortmund to London took flight, throwing fuel on the long-developing transfer rumor flames.

And now, it appears that the transfer is coming to fruition as Aubameyang has been spotted at Arsenal’s training grounds, presumably to complete a medical and finalize what has become one of the winter transfer window’s most compelling storylines.

What a mess.

So as it stands now, Aubameyang is in London awaiting a medical tomorrow at Arsenal. It may or may not happen depending on how Arsenal resolve Olivier Giroud’s situation, with Chelsea and their stained Russian oil currency suddenly pulling out empty pockets and sad faces. On top of that, there is very little indication on whether Giroud would accept a move to Dortmund - the logical best-case scenario if he ends up leaving the club this month.

Stay tuned to the blog today and tomorrow, as more updates, twists, and turns are bound to come.
