Multiple reports are suggesting Liverpool are keen on Borussia Dortmund’s world-class striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Mirror claim that while a £63.5m transfer to China is on the cards for the Gabonese international, Liverpool could trump them with a big offer this January for a player who originally thrived under Jurgen Klopp, who signed him from France in 2013.

Auba is one of the most clinical strikers in world football. He scored 39 goals in 2015/16, 40 last term and is already on 21 this campaign – only one less than Mo Salah!
We’d be delighted with Aubameyang, despite the fact he’s 28, but would be surprised if he’s the player Klopp wants.
Liverpool’s manager loves Roberto Firmino in a central role, and Auba’s arrival would move the Brazilian from his favoured position.
Firmino can play as an attacking midfielder, but we’d need to change formation from a 4-3-3 to a 4-2-3-1 to accommodate this – something we’d be surprised if Klopp wanted to do.
It’s a deeper midfielder we need, in the mould of Coutinho, rather than a striker.
