Borussia Dortmund have offered Arsenal just £1.3million to take Olivier Giroud on loan for the rest of the season.

And it could wreck boss Arsene Wenger’s hopes of signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this month.

But they are not happy with the Gunners’ £25m valuation of French striker Giroud, 31, and would prefer to take him on loan with the option to make the deal permanent.

The Germans will only offer a loan fee of £1.3m — despite demanding £60m from Arsenal for Gabon star Aubameyang.

Dortmund head coach Peter Stoger is unhappy with the speed of the negotiations and the club have briefed the German media that the move has stalled because of anger over Arsenal’s tactics.

Stoger is ready to play his 21-goal top scorer against Freiburg tomorrow after leaving him out for the last two games over disciplinary issues.

Hitman Aubameyang, 28, returned to training this week and Stoger said: “If I get the impression that he is disturbing the team, then I won’t select him for the squad.

“But, so far, everything has been fine by me.”
