TRANSFER RUMOURS: Liverpool are ready to meet Borussia Dortmund’s asking price for super star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. According to the Metro, Aubameyang, who turned 28 this Sunday, is keen to rejoin Jurgen Klopp, having worked with him at Borussia Dortmund in the past. Original source French publication Le Parisen.
The German side will demand upwards of €70m for their player, but the Reds owners haven’t been put off by the sum and are understood to be prepared to back Klopp in the endeavour.
As reported by the Express, Twitter is understandably going crazy! And so it should, having scored 40 goals in 45 appearances for Dortmund last season he is one of Europe’s hottest properties.
This superb goal-scoring record helped the club to a third-place finish in the Bundesliga table. His remarkable ability in front of goal, coupled with his pace, has made him one of the more sought-after talents on the European stage.
Liverpool would certainly challenge for the Premier League title if Klopp were to add the striker to their ranks this summer, yet Dortmund are keen on holding onto him, although they have made it known that certain incoming offers will be considered.
The prospect of a attacking line-up of Mané, Coutinho, Firmino, Aubameyang along with Salah is absolutely mouth watering!
