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.

Lack of playing time is hindering Adnan Januzaj’s development
The Manchester United attacker is currently on loan to Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.
Adnan Januzaj started brightly bagging his first goal just 18 minutes into his debut – a charity match versus St Pauli. Since then he has made little impact and is yet to start a game in the league. He has made just 5 appearances as a sub and created just one assist.
Two years ago it was a completely different story as he raised eye-brows at Manchester United during the Moyes era. The FA even considered him as someone who could one day play for England, as he is a ‘homegrown’ player.
Things changed though, with the arrival of current United boss, Louis van Gaal. Januzaj was given chances in both the No 9 and No 10 roles – roles that Januzaj has openly said he prefers to play in – by the manager but failed to impress. The decision was then made that the player would be shipped out on loan in the hope that he would play more and develop.
So what happens next for Adnan Januzaj? Does he see out his loan spell at Dortmund then go back out on loan to a team where he is likely to get more game time? Or does he finish his current loan spell then leave Manchester United altogether?
