Arsenal signed Lucas Perez from Deportivo La Caruna for £16m in the summer with Arsene Wenger criticised for a lack of ambition in the transfer market.

However, Italian agent Vincenzo Morabito told Radio CRC (as reported by the Daily Star) the Gunners went for a far greater prize.

Morabito says he found out that Aubameyang was worth £80m to Arsenal when he made an approach to Borussia Dortmund on behalf of a Serie A giant.

“Sometime ago, I called Zork, Dortmund’s director of football, to talk about Aubameyang [on behalf of Napoli], but the ‘no’ was absolutely categorical,” he said.

“I know that this summer, Arsenal offered €90m (£80m) for Aubameyang, but Borussia didn’t want to hear anything about it.”

Aubameyang was stood down by the club for a night out recently but paid them back with four goals on his return.
