Transfer round-up: Giroud, Mahrez, Moura, Aubameyang, Evans involved on deadline day

Aubameyang, 28, now hopes to emulate the achievements of his hero Thierry Henry following his £55 million club record arrival at the Emirates, on a day of good news for Gunners fans with Mesut Ozil signing a new three-and-a-half year contract.

“I think the club has such a big history and great players like Thierry,” he said. “He’s an example for us strikers.

“He was fast and scored a lot of goals. I think I have to work a lot to be like him, but I will do.”

But Arsenal missed out on West Brom defender Jonny Evans, although they did enquire about him yesterday, on a day where they allowed Mathieu Debuchy to join French side St Etienne.

Manchester City are understood to have offered a package of £55m cash plus Eliaquim Mangala, who was valued at £10m, for Mahrez but that was rejected by the Foxes.
