Arsenal, Liverpool told how much 28-year-old star will cost this summer
Arsenal and Liverpool have been quoted a price of £63m to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the summer transfer window
Arsenal and Liverpool have been told that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will cost £63m if the Premier League duo want to sign the Borussia Dortmund star.
The prolific 28-year-old striker is expected to leave the Bundesliga giants in the summer transfer window after deciding to call time on a four-year stay at Westfalenstadion.
Jurgen Klopp signed Aubameyang from French club Saint-Etienne during his spell in charge of Dortmund and the African striker scored 29 times 65 appearances under the charismatic coach.
Unsurprisingly, Liverpool have been touted as a potential suitor to sign the centre-forward considering Aubameyang’s experience of working with Klopp, while the Reds need a proven goal-scorer to rival injury-prone Daniel Sturridge.
Arsenal could be another destination for the Bundesliga striker as Arsene Wenger looks to revamp his squad following a disappointing season in the Champions League and the Premier League.
Aubameyang was thought to be on the brink of a move to Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month before a deal fell through.
Dortmund chief executive Joachim Watz revealed that interested clubs would have to pay a transfer fee in the region of £63m to sign Aubameyang.
“If an official bid were to reach more than £63million, it would have to be reported as a necessary to proceed. This has not happened so far,” Watzke told Bild, as quoted by the Independent.
Arsenal and Liverpool could have concerns about paying a club-record fee for a striker who just turned 28.
