Head coach Thomas Tuchel, meanwhile, is keen to reunite with Aubameyang. The Gabonese forward scored 79 goals under the German during their two seasons together at Borussia Dortmund. [Sky Sports]

If Lokonga, who joined Arsenal last year on a five-year deal, switches to AC Milan, then it would likely be on loan. [TMW – in Italian]
