Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: Striker has claimed Tottenham interest

Aubameyang was repeatedly linked with a move to the Premier League after an impressive spell at St Etienne and Tottenham were one of the clubs reported to have shown an interest.

The Gabon international has claimed that he rejected the chance to move to White Hart Lane after being left unhappy with how the deal was progressing.

"Tottenham tried to sign me in June 2012," Aubameyang is quoted in The Sun ahead of Dortmund's UEFA Champions League tie against Arsenal on Tuesday night.

"But in the end everything became a bit weird. I didn't really like the way things were done.

"So, if Spurs ever came back in for me, I'd say no."

The former AC Milan youngster was again linked with a move to Spurs in the most recent summer transfer window during Andre Villas-Boas' search for a new striker.

The 24-year-old was also often mooted as a target for Newcastle United before he opted for a switch to Dortmund, where he has scored five goals in nine Bundesliga appearances.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
