Liverpool to submit January bid for goal machine currently lighting up top flight - report

Liverpool want to reunite Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with Jurgen Klopp as the Reds are poised to bid for the prolific striker in January, according to a report.

The Daily Express reports that Liverpool are ready to make an offer in January as the striker is poised to leave Borussia Dortmund despite his impressive form.

He has scored 17 goals in 19 games across all competitions this season.

The 28-year-old had his transfer request rejected in the summer, but since then several incidents involving the player have caused the German giants to change their mind.

The striker was suspended by Dortmund last month after he was late for training and he is currently unable to play for his club after receiving a red card against Schalke.

The Reds will hope the lure of working with Klopp again will tempt the striker to choose them, as they face competition for his signature from Premier League rivals Chelsea.

It could be one in and one out as Liverpool could well lose striker Daniel Sturridge in January as the player wants more game time ahead of the World Cup finals in Russia next summer.

Football Insider Verdict

Goals aren’t Liverpool’s problem but then again how often does a player like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang enter the market? The striker flourished under Klopp and having a team consisting of both Mohamed Salah and Aubameyang would strike fear into any opponent. Salah and Aubameyang are capable of scoring enough goals, that it wouldn’t matter if the Reds played without a defence. Also while a club should always be worried about signing a player with behaviour issues, with the manager knowing him personally and being notoriously strict, it seems like a non-issue on this occasion for Liverpool.
