Liverpool fans react as club linked with signing Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Liverpool have reportedly joined the race to sign Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang according to reports from 90Min – and Reds supporters have reacted on Twitter to the news that the former Borussia Dortmund striker could be on his way to Anfield.

The reports claim that Aubameyang, 30, is a target of Liverpool ahead of the upcoming transfer window his Arsenal future currently up in the air. His current £200,000-a-week (Spotrac) contract expires in the summer of 2021.

Jurgen Klopp and Aubameyang were an emphatic combination during their time at Borussia Dortmund and the German manager was the man who announced Aubameyang onto the European scene.

Liverpool are undoubtedly going to face competition from a number of other interested parties with 90Min reporting that Barcelona, Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain are all in the hunt to lure the £50 million (Mail) star away from north-London.

Aubameyang has been one of the standout strikers in the Premier League since his arrival in January 2018. With 20 goals in 32 outings already this season, the Gabonese ace is in the hunt to retain the Golden Boot accolade he won last campaign – alongside Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Following the reports, Liverpool supporters have taken to Twitter to showcase their interest in luring the Arsenal skipper to Anfield and many believe the 30-year-old would be the perfect attacking addition to help provide cover and challenge Roberto Firmino for the No.9 spot.

However, there was a mixed response surrounding the Liverpool fanbase with some believing that the club are better suited looking elsewhere for options in the striker department.
