Man United have reportedly joined Barcelona, Arsenal and Chelsea in the race to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Borussia Dortmund striker has so far scored 22 goals in 18 games this season and is currently rated at £42m.
Louis van Gaal is keen to win the race for Aubameyang’s signature with Man United desperately needing a proven and prolific goal scorer in their ranks.
van Gaal has apparently had Aubameyang scouted several times this season and is ready to make his move.
Despite the strikers contract not due to expire until 2020, it is thought van Gaal is considering launching a bid in January.
As well as being a persistent goal scorer, Aubameyang also has bags of pace; something else Man United are lacking in their attack. He can also play as a winger and this will suit Louis van Gaal down to a tee as it is no secret he likes versatile players.
It is unlikely, though, that after the departure of Lewandowski to Bayern, Dortmund would be willing to allow Aubameyang to leave. However, should he continue to score goals at the rate he is, it would be hard for the Bundesliga giants to turn down a big money offer in the summer.
What do you think of Aubameyang? Would you like to see him in a United shirt? He has continued to improve over the last three seasons and only appears to be getting better. We would love to hear your thoughts. Please let us know in the comments below.
