Liverpool to rival Manchester City for Aubameyang

Liverpool with go head to head with Manchester City in a battle to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Manchester City were linked with a move for the striker just a few days ago, as they look for potential replacements for Sergio Aguero.

Aguero hasn’t been as regular a starter at the Etihad stadium this season under Pep Guardiola, and has recently lost his spot to 19-year old Brazilian, Gabriel Jesus.

Aubameyang to Anfield?

However, a report in The Sun claims that Jurgen Klopp is planning to go head to head with Manchester City in the hope of luring the Gabon striker to Anfield.

The newspaper claims that Klopp hopes to have the upper hand in negotiations to bring the Aubameyang to the Premier League, having already signed him once.

It was Klopp that initially signed Aubameyang to take him to Borussia Dortmund.

Funding the move

The move would be funded by the sale of Daniel Sturridge, who has fallen fully out of favour under the German coach. Klopp has given up on the former Chelsea and Manchester City man, and will allow him to leave, in order to free up funds for the Aubameyang move.

The article claims that the move to take Aubameyang to Anfield would cost in the region of £40million.

However, Football Faithful believe that Borussia Dortmund, who are willing to cash in on their prized asset, would be wanting in excess of £60million.
