Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been linked with a big-money move to Liverpool FC this summer by French publication Le Parisian.
It was always going to happen at some point wasn’t it? If it’s not Lacazette links to get everyone excited then it’s got to be Aubameyang.
The Gabonese striker has worked under Klopp before and it was the German who initially brought the lightning quick forward to Dortmund back in 2013.
Needless to say, it certainly did excite the fanbase and Twitter erupted after the reports broke.
There were measured responses
£61m for Aubameyang represents real value for money. Would love for Liverpool to at least throw their hat in the ring this summer.

*If* we could somehow get him, I’d much rather see us spend a large chunk of our summer budget on Aubameyang over Keita, Van Dijk etc.

I know it would never happen but imagine Mané, Salah and Aubameyang as your front three 🤤

Lots of talk about money
If we genuinely are interested in Aubameyang pls can we just bid lots of money from the start for once 💰🙏🏼

Could possibly guarantee you champions league football for 2/3 seasons? Pays for himself? Shirt sales etc as well?

I’d pay anything to get him, he’d easily score 30 in all comps, but it’s not really a conversation worth having as he wouldn’t want to come

L’Equipe – “Liverpool want Lacazette”
Le Parisian – “Liverpool want Aubameyang & vice versa”

Can’t wait to miss out on Aubameyang because the geniuses of Liverpool will insist on paying €68.95m instead of €70m.

A little smidgen of optimism
Mané – Aubameyang – Salah
I’m sorry, but this would be illegal.

And of course, some ‘ITK’ snoozefests
Spoke to a guy who is familiar with Le Parisien. He told me the LFC Aubameyang interest is absolutely real. Guy has contact in PSG.

What do you think? Will Liverpool Football Club sign the Gabonese international for €70m this summer, or will the optimists be disappointed come August?
What do you guys reckon of getting Aubameyang for €70m?
