What makes the whole situation with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang even more incredible is it's actually Wenger acting decisively to replace the goals he'll lose from Alexis Sanchez leaving for Manchester United.
Schurrle and his teammates will soon be out of their misery.
Speaking after Arsenal's 4-1 destruction of Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, Wenger explained that the only reason he is able to talk about the Sanchez-Mkhitaryan deal is because it is close to being completed.More news: 48% of Americans think Trump's 'shithole' remarks were racist
Dortmund sports director Michael Zorc said that Aubameyang will return into the team if he acts and trains in a professional way but at the same there is growing speculation that he may leave before the end of the January transfer window - with England's Arsenal said to be interested.
"January has been hard for us, destabilising". It hasn't been easy to concentrate on football because there's only been one topic off the pitch.
Aubameyang was spotted playing at Soccerworld in Dortmund while wearing his club's replica shirt with Ousmane Dembele's name and former squad number on the back.

All that was left was for us to agree a fee with Dortmund and it seems we've now made our move as the Telegraph claim that we've seen an opening offer worth around £45m knocked back by the Bundesliga outfit.
It is understood that Arsenal are set to give Aubameyang a way out of Signal Iduna Park by offering £53million for him. Everything seems OK, but you never know what's going on in his head. "But if you drive me to jail in your Lambo - Deal!"
Dortmund will not accept less than 60 million euros for Gabon hot-shot Aubameyang, who is under contract with Borussia until 2021, reports say.More news: (NYSE:HUN) Major Shareholder Sells $42214365.30 in Stock
