According to reports, Liverpool and Chelsea are set to battle in the race to sign £65million rated Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabon international Aubameyang is renowned for his lightning fast pace and is one of the most in demand forwards in World football.

Jurgen Klopp has reportedly been trying to convince the Liverpool board to sign the player that he took to Dortmund in 2013.
