Arsenal have reached a £60m agreement in principle with Borussia Dortmund to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
According to sky sports, completion of the transfer is subject to Dortmund securing a replacement.
The Gunners had a bid in excess of £50m rejected last week, with Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc saying they would only let the 28-year-old go if their demands were met.
The Gabon international did not testify as planned in the trial over the attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus on Monday because of illness.
Aubameyang was booed by a section of Dortmund fans at the Westfalenstadion during their 2-2 draw with Freiburg on Saturday and a banner in the crowd read: ‘No player is bigger than our club’.
