The Gunners have been chasing the Gabon international all month after Alexis Sanchez left to join Manchester United.

Arsenal had two bids initially turned down believed to be in the region of £50m.

However, it now appears they have agreed terms with the Bundesliga outfit for a fee of €63m (£55m).

That is according to German publication Kicker.

It is also reported that Olivier Giroud will not be moving in the opposite direction as he prefers a transfer to Stamford Bridge.
