Manchester City are understood to be in “advanced talks” to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Aubameyang is one of the hottest properties in Europe after scoring 25 goals in 29 Bundesliga appearances, and has been linked with a host of clubs including Real Madrid, Manchester United and Arsenal.

But according to Sky Sports, City are set to beat their rivals to the signing of the 26-year-old, in what would be a huge statement of intent.

However, there were conflicting reports on Aubameyang. After Sky Sports, the Guardian and the Daily Mail all went big on the story, a number of journalists reported that Manchester City flat-batted the reports.

Incoming manager Pep Guardiola has already landed midfielder Ilkay Gundogan from Dortmund, and the Spaniard is also understood to be interested in Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte and Everton’s John Stones.
