It looks like one of the deadliest finishers in world football has sent out a ‘come and get me’ plea to the biggest clubs around Europe.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was all set to complete a stunning transfer to Chinese super club, Tianjin Quanjian for a reported 81 Million Euro deal. He would earn around 500,000 pounds per week and 30 Million euro per year. But something went amiss, and the deal was shelved.

The Borussia Dortmund ace striker has wanted out of the club for quite a while now. The Gabon international is one of the biggest names on the transfer market, which is why some of the biggest clubs in Europe are looking to add him to their squads.
But Dortmund are playing hard ball over their star player, as they are not willing to let him go for anything less than 60 million.
Yesterday, the pacey striker admitted that he needed to grow and is open to moving away from Dortmund.
“This club and these fans are incredible, but if I want to grow, I feel I need to leave,” said the Gabon international on Sunday. “This is the question I keep on asking myself – and I don’t have an answer. I need time to think about it.”
“If I want to grow, I surely need to leave this summer. I am 28 and I need to grow. If I leave, it will only be somewhere I would play regularly.”
Chelsea were keen on the Gabon international, before he went ahead and brought in Morata for a huge fee. But when you have someone with the quality of Aubameyang on the market, why would you not try and get him?
