Arsenal were very keen to replace their Chilean Striker Alexis Sanchez, so they were very keen to sign the Gabon striker Pierre Erich Abumayeang, who is playing in Germany with Borussia Dortmund. Arsene wenger did not fly down to Germany to the deal, but Arsenal sent their executive , lawyers, and their main scout to get the deal done. As usual Arsenal were not at all willing to pay any crazy sum of money to get their man, there was a lot of wrangling inn the price for the striker, and in two days the German club rejected the offer made by Arsenal twice The first offer was for 44, forty four million pounds, and they increased the sum to fifty one million pounds. This was also rejected by the Germans,, but finally they agreed to a total of roughly 55, fifty five million pounds, and with add ons , the total has finally reached 58, fifty eight million pounds, Borussia Dortmund wanted sixty million pounds and not a penny less. Borussia Dortmund were not willing to release their striker until they had replaced their striker. Borussia Dortmund were asking for the Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud as part of the transfer. But the things just did not work out that way, as Olivier Giroud had no plan to move from London to Germany, his wife had a big say in this deal . Now it looks like the Belgian striker of Chelsea Michy Batshuayi , will join up with Borussia Dortmund on a year long loan . secondly he is not cup tied , as this year Arsenal were not playing in the Champion League. And Arsenal will be willing to sell Olivier Giroud to Chelsea , for a sum of 35, thirty five million pounds, the reason he is costly is that he has scored twenty or more goals each year since he joined Arsenal in 2012. Now the Gabon striker will become Arsenal's highest footballer he will get a weekly salary of180,000 ne hundred and eighty thousand pounds. Will sign a contract for three and a half years. Mind you Arsenal will not be paying any stupid weekly salary , like Manchester United is paying Alexis Sanchez, who is getting 600,000 six hundred thousand pounds a week.
