The 28 year took the Bundesliga with a storm scoring 120 times in 189 games for Dortmund. He was brought on by Klopp, in 2013 from Ligue 1 side, St. Etienne.
The striker, though flourished only under the succeeding manager, Tomas Tuchel. Last season itself, Aubameyang scored 40 times. He is currently one of the best striker in the world.
After the links with Real Madrid dried off, Aubameyang was linked with a £70 million move to either PSG or Chinese club, Tianjin Quojin. Both the deals failed to materialize. The new tax laws in China, specifically brought to prevent the incessant influx of foreign players slowed down the deal by Tianjin Quojin.
Since then, only two Premier League clubs are being linked with the striker, Chelsea and Liverpool.
As Aubameyang was initially introduced to Bundesliga by Klopp, experts are saying that there is a reunion written on cards with the former manager. Klopp would be the reason if the 28 year old joins the Reds.
According to Daily Star, Liverpool are preparing a bid in the region of £65 million and have already initiated talks with the German club.
Klopp, reportedly has been tracking him since April. The only problem with the deal getting successful is that the Anfield chiefs are reluctant to meet the asking wages of the player, which seem to be around £180,000 per week.
Not only Liverpool, but even Chelsea have initiated talks with Dortmund, according to the report. Chelsea suffered a huge setback recently in their pursuit of a striker after their long time target and former player, Romelu Lukaku changed his stance in the end and decided to join Jose Mourinho’s side.
The fact that even Costa is not in Conte’s plans for next season only aggravates the situation and now Conte has to offload the Spaniard to get the money to fund the high profile move.
Though Liverpool are predicted to be the front-runners to land Aubameyang, Klopp being the reason, Chelsea’s offers might have a different thing to say as they are more likely to meet the financial demands of the club and the player.
