Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: Linked with move to Borussia Dortmund

Reports emanating from Germany claim Dortmund are in pole position to land the Gabon international with talks at an advanced stage between both clubs.

A host of clubs across Europe have been linked with a move for Aubameyang, with Newcastle credited with a long-term interest in the 24-year-old.

However, it appears UEFA Champions League finalists Dortmund are ready to meet St Etienne's asking price for the prolific forward.

The news will be a blow for Newcastle as they had been keeping tabs on Aubameyang for several months and was thought to be one of Alan Pardew's top summer transfer targets.
