Chelsea and Liverpool have been linked with Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the summer transfer window.

Liverpool are interested in signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window, according to The Sun.

The British tabloid has claimed that the Premier League club have made contact with the 28-year-old striker, who is reportedly rated at £65 million.

According to the report, Chelsea are also interested in the Gabon international and have made contact with the star as well.

However, The Sun has claimed that Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group are reluctant to meet the Bundesliga outfit’s valuation of Aubameyang or match the striker’s £180,000-a-week wage demand.

Aubameyang is one of the best players on the planet and is a world-class striker who would take Liverpool to a whole new level.

The former Saint-Etienne star has scored 85 goals in 128 Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund so far in his career, according to The Sun, including 31 goals in 32 league matches last season, according to WhoScored.

The 28-year-old is at his peak at the moment, and signing him in the summer transfer window would enhance Liverpool’s chances of winning the Premier League title next season and progressing to the group stage of the Champions League.
