Jurgen Klopp has insisted he won’t raid his former-club, but Aubameyang is a reported target
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is reportedly keen on a £35million switch to re-join Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.
Klopp takes over his first training session at Melwood today since replacing Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool boss last week.
It is understood that the German coach will give his players a chance to prove themselves and ran their place in the new team.
Klopp has also revealed that he is not in any race to delve straight into the transfer window to bolster the squad he has inherited, however he has already been linked with some of his former players, including that of Gabonese striker, Aubameyang.
It is claimed the £35m-rated forward is open to a move to the Premier League, though he is also currently being monitored by FC Barcelona.
A source told The Sun: “An offer of joining Liverpool now Jurgen is there would be an attractive proposition.”
Career at Dortmund
Aubameyang was brought to the Signal Iduna Park in 2013 for £10m from French side St. Etienne with the 26-year-old scoring 40 goals in his first 60 starts.
The goalscorer’s deal with Dortmund expires in 2020.
However, Dortmund chief executive officer Hans-Joachim Watzke claims Klopp will not be pursuing any of his former players to strengthen the Liverpool squad.
“Jurgen would never do anything that would damage BVB’s interests,” he told German newspaper Bild.
“I am 100 per cent certain about that. He would never approach any players behind our back.
“We are simply too close for things like that to happen. We have been through too much together.”
