Borussia Dortmund Want Premier League Striker To Replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Borussia Dortmund are resigned to losing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and the German outfit reportedly want a Premier League striker to fill his void.
It appears Arsenal on the verge of signing the Gabon striker who's enjoying a prolific campaign this season.
He's already bagged 21 goals in 23 games in all competitions, as he nears a move to the Premier League.
But how will Borussia Dortmund replace his services?
Well, Bild suggests the club are looking at Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi. The Belgium striker remains subject to intense transfer speculation, with West Ham also keeping tabs on him ahead of tabling a bid.

Batshuayi has played a bit part role under Antonio Conte this term, and the Italian gaffer has even resorted to playing Pedro as a 'false No.9'.
The 24-year-old is keen on featuring regularly with the World Cup in mind. He's hoping to string together a run of games leading up to the summer.

While Batshuayi continues do the the rounds, Chelsea's pursuit for a target man took a surprise twist with the inquiry of Stoke City's Peter Crouch. It follows the interest expressed in Andy Carroll.
Reports in Italy also suggest Chelsea want Edin Dzeko and are willing to offer Batshuayi as makeweight.
Conte is still relentlessly looking for a big man after missing out on Spaniard Fernando Llorente in the summer, who opted to join to Spurs.
Will he land his striker? And will Batshuayi leave Stamford Bridge this month? The January market is hotting up.
