It looks like Aubameyang’s time at the Bundesliga will soon come to an end as various clubs have made the Gabon International their primary target.
Earlier last month, multiple reports had claimed that Dortmund had accepted a 70 million bid from Chinese Super League side Tianjin Quanjian.
However Tianjin’s pursuit of Aubameyang has been slowed down by new tax laws in China designed to stem the flow of foreign players entering the game.
Huge fees have been forked out for top stars in the last two years, but Tianjin are still confident they can land Aubameyang.
The prolific striker has already indicated he wants to take on a new challenge with reports claiming Spain to be his preferred destination, when the route to China came up.
The Dortmund striker has been the main strike force for the club in the past couple of seasons and he had an especially prolific 2016/17 season, ending up as Bundesliga’s top scorer with 31 goals beating the likes of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski among others.
Aubameyang 2016/17 stats :

Now latest reports claim that Chelsea have reportedly made contact with the striker’s camp as they are desperate to sign an attacker of reputation after losing out on Everton’s Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, with Madrid’s morata also on their radar.
Liverpool and Arsenal have also been consistently linked with Aubameyang, however there has never been any serious bid from the Merseyside club and Arsenal have instead opted to sign French striker Alexandre Lacazette.
However, latest reports coming out from Italy claims that AC Milan have scheduled a meeting with Aubameyang’s camp this week in an attempt to bring the striker back to the club he left 10 years ago.
AC Milan has been quite busy in this year’s transfer season and have already made 6 quality signings , and are apparently not done yet as they look to end the Juventus dominance in the Serie A and more importantly qualify for the Champions League next season.
Inspite of reports claiming that the Dortmund forward will move to China this season, ‘Gianluca Di Marizo.com’ claim Milan have not given up hope that they can lure Aubameyang away from the riches of China.
A meeting has been booked with Aubameyang’s team and his father, who also acts as his agent.
Milan had been rocked by Aubameyang’s wage demands and the asking price set by Borussia Dortmund.
But the Serie A side are confident that they can convince Aubameyang to move to Milan and at the same time convince the Dortmund officials to lower their price demands.
If the deal does go through, then Milan is definitely a team to watch this season ( As if they are not already !).
