Pundit questions why top striker would want Liverpool move
Kasey Keller has questioned why Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would want to work with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp again
Kasey Keller has questioned whether Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would want to work with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
The Gabon international is expected to leave Borussia Dortmund in the current transfer window after growing disillusioned with life at the Westfalenstadion.
Aubameyang finished as the Bundesliga’s top goal-scorer last term after the 28-year-old scored 30 times in 31 games under Thomas Tuchel’s management.
The Dortmund coach has since left his role, and Aubameyang has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer transfer window.
Aubameyang was brought to the German club during Klopp’s stint in charge of the Bundesliga outfit, which naturally would suggest Liverpool could be a possible summer destination for the striker.
However, former Spurs goalkeeper Keller has claimed that Aubameyang and Klopp don’t share an understanding, which would prevent a switch to Anfield as a result.
“There was some tension where he didn’t speak kindly of the exiting manager,” Keller told ESPN FC.
“There were some words there.”
Liverpool finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term, securing a spot in the Champions League.
