Chelsea and Liverpool ready to pounce as Dortmund star rejects new deal

Chelsea and Liverpool could be set to make a fresh offer for Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Aubameyang was linked with a move to both the Premier League and Serie A this summer, admitting he would have loved a return to former club Milan.

Although an exit never happened, according to Calciomercato, Aubameyang may still decide not to sign any contract extension  offered anytime in the future.

The report says “after a summer of speculation, Borussia Dortmund had offered the player a huge contract extension”.

Aubameyang even admitted that he wanted an exit, ideally to Milan: “I want AC Milan but they fell asleep”, the 28-year-old said.

Liverpool legend Phil Thompson has insisted Jurgen Klopp must sign a striker in January and has suggested that Aubameyang could be just the man.

“I do feel that come January we need to improve the defenders and get an out-and-out striker,” he told Sky Sports. “If Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang became available then he should be on our hit list.”
