Liverpool are reportedly gearing up to hijack Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's mooted move to the Chinese Super League.

Liverpool are reportedly gearing up to hijack Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's proposed move to the Chinese Super League.

The 28-year-old has 13 goals in 15 league appearances for the Bundesliga outfit so far this season but is believed to be up for sale after a series of fallings-out with manager Peter Stoger and his predecessor Peter Bosz.

On Tuesday a report suggested that the Gabon international was in "advanced" talks with Guangzhou Evergrande over a £63.5m switch, but according to Le Sport 10 today, Liverpool are preparing to enter the fray with their own big-money bid.

Aubameyang has previously worked with Reds manager Jurgen Klopp during the latter's stint in charge of Dortmund and is one of several potential replacements for Philippe Coutinho, who sealed a £142m switch to Barcelona over the weekend.

Arsenal have also been linked with the player in recent seasons but Gunners manager Arsene Wenger last week dismissed reports that the club could bid for him as "not a possibility".
