The Bundesliga side have already rejected two Arsenal bids of £45m and £50m for the striker.

Aubameyang failed to turn up in court to give evidence due to ‘illness’ on Monday as the transfer speculation goes on.

Dortmund offered just £1.3million to take Giroud on loan at the Signal Iduna Park for the rest of the season.

It was reported that Peter Stoger was not willing to stump up the full price for the 31-year-old.
