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.

o is Jordan Ibe overqualified for this list or what? To be honest I was expecting to see his name, I thought he'd fit in perfectly. Maybe his name is too familiar? Because otherwise this list should be made for him. You could actually just insert his name & stats into the middle paragraph about Brandt and it would describe Ibe.

hat a wonderful compliment - that Wenger has been able to raise more funds for players running a football club than Jose's patron has in running the economy of a small country. I guess it shows there are different kinds of success.
