Chelsea, Liverpool both want to sign top 28-year-old forward – report
Chelsea and Liverpool are among the clubs keeping tabs on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer, say reports
Chelsea and Liverpool will lead the Premier League race to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mail claims that the two Premier League clubs are interested in signing the 28-year-old forward, who could be set to quit Borussia Dortmund this summer.
The same story carries quoted from Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke, who says that the German side would be willing to listen to offers for the Gabon international.
Aubameyang was one of the Bundesliga’s top performers last season as he hit 31 goals in 32 games for the German outfit.
It remains to be seen how Aubameyang’s future will develop, but it is claimed in the same story that the player and Liverpool boss Klopp did not see “eye to eye” during their time together at Dortmund – a factor which could hand Chelsea an advantage.
Liverpool are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Klopp prepares his team for a return to the Champions League.
It is the same situation for Chelsea, who did not compete in the Champions League last term.
