Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly signed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after striking a £61million deal with Borussia Dortmund.

The Gabon international struck 31 goals to finish as the leading goalscorer in the Bundesliga this season and also chipped in with another nine goals in all competitions to underline his status as one of European football’s most revered strikers.

The likes of Real Madrid, as well as Premier League sides Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City had all been touted as possible suitors for Aubameyang.

However, The Sun claims that the 27-year-old has now agreed to join PSG on an annual salary of £8.75million with an expected signing-on fee of £5million.

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang: Target for Man United

The striker helped Borussia Dortmund to the quarter-finals of the Champions League and to glory in the German Cup, only to see manager Thomas Tuchel quit the club on Tuesday.

PSG missed out on the Ligue 1 title to an impressive young Monaco side, who reached the semi-finals of the Champions League this campaign, and Aubameyang could be the first of many signings.

The capture will see the striker return to French football having previously starred for Saint-Etienne, where he scored 41 goals in 97 games before joining Dortmund in 2013.
