Everton manager Sam Allardyce has teased a potential move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Aubameyang was linked with Everton on Friday by the Daily Mirror, with the striker having fallen out with Borussia Dortmund management numerous times.
A number of Premier League clubs have been linked with the Gabon international over the years, and Allardyce was eager to stoke the fires of speculation.
“It’s the hardest thing to recruit: a centre-forward who scores goals,” he said.
“Is he the right type of centre-forward for you? It’s the most expensive area of the pitch. We have a number of players here with good goalscoring records who haven’t perhaps settled.
“It’s my opinion that my first signing has to be the right signing for Everton and my future. If you make bad signings, you get the sack. If you make good signings, you become a better manager.”
Asked if Aubameyang specifically fit the bill, he replied: “I’m not telling you.”
