However, after PSG opted to “pull the plug” on the deal, a host of Premier League sides have been handed a massive boost.

Aubameyang is under contract at the Westfalenstadion until 2020, but is widely expected to finally call it a day at Dortmund this summer.

Reds chief Klopp is hoping to reunite with the Gabon international as he looks for a fresh out-and-out striker.

The German wants to partner Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana with Aubameyang.

On top of that, Liverpool have edged ever closer to landing Roma winger Mohamed Salah in a £35m deal.

After PSG pulled out of the deal Le Parisien reported that the Reds – preparing for life back in the Champions League – were in prime position to land Aubameyang’s signature.

The Dortmund star was the top scorer in the Bundesliga last season, scoring 31 times in just 31 league games.
