Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been a subject of transfer speculation all summer linked with a move to Arsenal. The Gabon international finished the 2015-16 season with 39 goals to take his tally with Dortmund to 54 goals in 94 appearances.

We also take a look at last season’s Premier League Player of the Year, Algeria’s Riyad Mahrez who has also been strongly linked with a transfer to Arsenal.

The Olympic football tournament is almost set to kick off in Rio de Janeiro. We speak to South Africa U-23 coach, Owen da Gama whose team meets red-hot favourites Brazil.
