Aubameyang has frequently had to play on the wing this season under Unai Emery, and he would no doubt be keen for Perisic to come in and fill the void Arsenal have on the flanks.
Ivan Perisic has agreed a loan move from Inter to Arsenal which will be made permanent at the end of the season, according to reports from Italy.

"This transfer (window) is not easy, and the message is the club is working on different players and the possibility if it can be is good for us", Emery told reporters on Monday, refusing to be drawn on specific names.
Arsenal are now fifth in the Premier League table and host Cardiff City on Tuesday as they look to bounce back from their FA Cup fourth-round loss at the hands of Manchester United.
"In football everything is possible, we will see in the future".
