Tottenham in talks for World Class Striker?

There have been talks of the red side of north London testing Dortmund's resolve from early on, however a bid of just under £30million was dismissed.

Links have since grown that Tottenham are vying for the Gabon striker and now there are reports from several tabloids that the two clubs are set to go head to head and offer in excess of £30million!

However PSG are now also being linked to the ex Etienne forward. Having already played in France the striker may opt for a big money move to PSG knowing the league and style of play well.

As mentioned before I am I am surprised by the initial link, but then for further links to arise I can only imagine that Tottenham have been dragged into this to push the price up? Tottenham have been reluctant to spend big since the arrival of Lamela, Soldado and Paulinho.

If we put that to one side and look at the actual player himself I am certain that he would be a great signing for MoPo. He is hard working, is a target man standing at 6ft 1 but his goal scoring ability and experience are his most valuable assets (at the tender age of 26).

Aubameyang started his career at Milan and spent 4 years out on loan in Ligue 1 with Dijon, Lille, Monaco and Saint Etienne. A move that was made permanent once the French outfit saw his potential (still at the age of 22). It was at this stage that Pierre made a name for himself scoring 39 goals in 88 appearances. This prompted Dortmund to make a bid and land the striker for a mere £10.5million! The striker has since gone on to score 42 goals in 95 appearances, but this season he scored 26 goals!

With all his loan moves taken into account the strikers goals to game ratio is ok at 0.35 per game, however for the past 4 seasons it has actually been 0.44 (a big rise in form).

It seems that the striker is beginning to find the net more regularly and taking last season into account (without Lewandowski at the club) it is now obvious that the forward is now ready to lead a front line.

Thoughts are obvious we want a striker like this, but it’s unlikely that this will happen. However we can always dream right?

COYS!
