Transfer Deadline Merry-Go-Round: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang From Borussia Dortmund to Arsenal, Olivier Giroud From Arsenal to Chelsea and Michy Batshuayi From Chelsea to Borussia Dortmund


The three-way deal that has been the talk of football for days finally came off just hours before England’s transfer deadline.

In the space of a few, short hours Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang went from Borussia Dortmund to Arsenal for £56million, £18 million Olivier Giroud switched allegiances from North to West London and Arsenal to Chelsea and Michy Batshuayi agreed a six-month loan deal taking him from Chelsea to Borussia Dortmund.

As unlikely as the triple transfer appeared at one point, all three clubs appeared satisfied with their new players. Perhaps only Arsenal fans were left wondering whether their club would rue allowing their French super-sub to join such a close Premier League rival.
