Liverpool transfer news and rumours: £55m goal-machine puts Jurgen Klopp on red alert

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has put Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on red alert.

The Gabon striker has told Borussia Dortmund chiefs that he wants to quit the Bundesliga club this summer.

And the news could intrigue his former manager Klopp, who is keen to bolster his squad ahead of next season’s title at Champions League football.

Aubameyang was the top scorer in German football last season with 30 Bundesliga goals.

The former St-Etienne man could win his first major honour with Dortmund when Thomas Tuchel’s men face Eintracht Frankfurt in DFB Pokal cup final – a competition they have finished as runner-up twice in the last two season’s.

But according to German daily Bild , the 27-year-old is keen to hand in a transfer request in order to take on a new challenge.

Dortmund would not let him leave cheaply, however, and would command upwards of £55million to dispense with the striker’s services.

That could force Liverpool to look elsewhere and open the door to the likes of PSG and AC Milan wo are also reportedly interested.
