Manchester City are preparing a bid to lure one of Europe’s top strikers, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, to the Etihad Stadium, according to Sky sources.
The 28-year old Borussia Dortmund striker was set to join Paris Saint-Germain next month in a move thought to be around £60m. However the deal hit the buffers last week alerting Pep Guardiola to his availability.
City believe there are very few high-quality strikers on the market at present and Aubameyang, who scored 42 goals for club and country last season, could be a huge boost to their ranks.
His former manager, Jurgen Klopp has also been linked with a move for the Gabon striker, although Sky Sports News HQ understands these reports are inaccurate.
