After an intense season of Premier League football, Liverpool managed to qualify for the Champions League and they are looking to improve their squad accordingly. They have been looking at some of the finest players in world football and the latest name constantly linked with a move to the club is Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The 28-year old is one of the best strikers in world football at the moment and was a target for some of the biggest clubs in Europe last summer. And it is now understood that he is up for sale officially.

Speaking to German new outfit Bild, Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke revealed that the club are ready to listen to offers for their star striker this summer. However, he revealed that any interested parties need to meet his valuation of £63m to start any kind of negotiations.

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp is the man who bought Aubameyang to the Signal Iduna Park and there is every chance that he might look at a reunion with him at Anfield in the next season.

The Reds have finally announced the signing of AS Roma star Mohamed Salah and are now stronger in their attack. Brazilian star Roberto Firmino looks to be the first choice striker next season while Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi and Danny Ings could be used in that order.

This leaves little space for Aubameyang in the squad but with figures like 40 goals and five assists in just 46 games, Liverpool will want to add him to their attack to go for an all-out assault on the Premier League title next season.

With Salah and Sadio Mane on the wings, Liverpool have pace in abundance next season, and adding the Gabon star will make them one of the quickest attacks in Europe. This will mean that Roberto Firmino will have to drop to the bench, and Klopp might have to sell one of the strikers to make way.

Danny Ings is wanted by Newcastle while Origi also has some suitors but Daniel Sturridge is one player who could fetch Liverpool £40m, and if either PSG or West Ham, as reported, are ready to meet his valuation, it will be a dream scenario for Liverpool, where they will have to spend just £23m on Aubameyang in outlay.

So it all comes down to if Klopp trusts the English, injury prone striker, to help Liverpool next season. If Sturridge can stay fit, he has the potential to eclipse Aubameyang’s figures but his injury record has got the better of him for quite a while now and it might just be time for the Reds to move on, especially with a player of Aubameyang’s calibre available for such a price.
