Aubameyang close to PSG transfer

Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is reportedly on the cusp of joining Paris Saint-Germain ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

The Gabon international has been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City over the past year amid suggestions that he could end his association with BvB.

Aubameyang, 27, is on course to achieve his best season to date with 35 goals across all competitions, and according to German daily Bild, he could be off to Parc des Princes in the summer.

The former AC Milan graduate is understood to have held secret negotiations with Les Parisiens' sporting director Patrick Kluivert on Wednesday ahead of his proposed return to Ligue 1 next season.

A fee for the transfer has yet to be finalised but Dortmund are likely to give up on their leading scorer as they often don't keep players against their wishes.

Aubameyang has amassed 115 goals in 185 outings for Borussia Dortmund since arriving from Saint-Etienne for a £10m fee in 2013. 

He has previously stated his ambition to play for Real Madrid, but his dream may have to wait for a while with Zinedine Zidane's side not in the hunt for a new marksman.
