Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang next club Odds

Next club for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Odd unit: EU | UK | US

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one of the hottest players this summer transfer window and his performances over the course of his last four years at Borussia Dortmund have certainly justified his billing as one the best strikers in the world.

No wonder then he is so coveted and is being eyed by almost all the top clubs in the lookout for a world-class striker. He has perennially been linked with a move to Real Madrid as they look for an upgrade on the French striker Karim Benzema but they are yet to make an official bid. Aubameyang, who turns out for the Gabonese national team in international football, has certainly made no bones about his preference for La Liga.

He has talked up both the bigwigs of Spanish football — Real Madrid and Barcelona. However, it is highly likely that at the Catalan outfit he would be playing second fiddle to first–choice striker Luis Suarez, something that he is too good for. In the given scenario the Santiago Bernabeu is a safer bet, but since the club haven’t made an offer yet that move likely is on the backburner.

Liverpool have also been in contention with former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp being linked with his former pupil but the hefty fee demands from the Black and Yellows for their prized possession could throw a spanner in their plans. Liverpool, despite their American riches, are cautious spenders in the transfer market and are strict in their wage policy which may put the Gabon striker off.

The Italian giants AC Milan have spent big this summer, having already acquired the likes of Andre Silva, Mateo Musacchio and Ricardo Rodriguez, showing their inclination of again becoming a force to be reckoned with in Italian and European football. And a top-quality striker leading the line will certainly be the icing on the cake that signals their competition that the seven-time European champions are back among the big boys of Europe.

AC Milan are considering a move for the striker who has racked in an astonishing 120 goals in 189 appearances in all competitions for the Black and Yellows since he landed at the Signal Iduna Park from Saint-Etienne in the summer of 2013. However, it remains to be seen if they table a serious bid for the forward.

But what is increasingly looking the most likely option for Aubamenyang is a move to the Chinese Super League with a shocking transfer to Tianjin Quanjian. With a wage of £500,000-a-week, the Chinese outfit are offering a salary that would be beyond the reach of almost all the European clubs. Aubamenyang will be pocketing an eye-watering €30million each year for the move and that is too good for any player to turn down. The move will make Borussia Dortmund richer by €81 million.

The move — if it goes through — will be derided by football purists but in a game where a player’s career could effectively be over with one serious injury, it would be foolish to fault Aubameyang if he chooses to go to China.
