Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a 'top-class striker', according to Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner.

The 28-year-old is close to a move to Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund after agreeing in principle with the Gunners.

The forward has scored 13 top-flight goals this season for the German side and the former Dortmund assistant manager has no doubt regarding the striker's goalscoring ability.

"He will be top class. He is a top-class striker, goalscorer - he has everything," Wagner told Sky Sports.

"The club who will sign him can be very happy for sure. I really like this player."

Arsenal are sixth in the English top-flight log and will be hoping to add the striker to their rank in their quest to make a top-four finish at the end of the season.
