Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the Deadline Day
The famous Deadline Day at 11pm on the 31st of January is the transfer closing window. This is the last chance for transfer in the Premier League and other European countries like Germany (5pm), Italy (10pm) or Spain (11pm). This also is the end of the fight for the last change-willing footballers. Manchester United made the best deal as Arsenal Star goes to the Red Devils and Henrikh Mkhitaryan goes the other way.
Deadline Day for Arsenal: The Gunners are still hunting for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund. The final formalities seem to be done and the transfer sum is 63 million euros. But the official confirmation does not exist yet. That could last until the last second of the Deadline Day! Another club is also still fighting until the very last minute of the Deadline Day: Tottenham are trying to sign Lucas Moura from FC Paris Saint-Germain. Slowly it gets hectic, because only a few hours are left until the deadline.
