Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is “open” to joining former Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
Klopp signed the player for BVB in 2013, and he has blossomed into one of the most deadly attackers on the planet.
Liverpool are still looking for a striking sensation since the departure of Luis Suarez, and Aubameyang fits the profile of a world-class acquisition.
The player’s record for his club is in the top echelon, scoring 120 goals in 189 appearances for Dortmund.
Here is the Gabon international in action:
Klopp will be aiming to expand his squad in the coming weeks as the club faces the prospect of life in the UEFA Champions League.
According to Olver, Liverpool are also “closing in on a deal” for Mohamed Salah of Roma, giving the Reds fresh options in attack.
The 25-year-old can play a number of positions, but he would bring genuine width to Anfield if he arrives soon.
Per Olver, Klopp continues to negotiate a price for the Eqyptian star after Roma turned down a £28 million offer from the Reds.

Salah was a regular for his team last season, scoring 15 times and providing 11 assists in 29 starts in Serie A, according to WhoScored.com.
The player signed for Chelsea in 2014 but failed to live up to expectations at Stamford Bridge in the challenging environment of English football.
This might force Klopp to think long and hard about completing a deal, but Salah has experienced a huge upturn in fortunes in Italy.
Aubameyang’s signing would be a statement of intent from Liverpool as they attempt to take their former place at the top of European football back.
The switch to the Reds would be a huge surprise as the striker has been consistently linked with the biggest teams on the planet, per the Telegraph.
