Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is on the verge of joining Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjian from Dortmund for over £70m, according to reports in Germany.

Aubameyang has scored 120 goals in 189 appearances for Dortmund but with no move to a truly European elite club forthcoming, it seems he has chosen to earn over £26m a year in China.

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke had named their price for Aubameyang at £63m but SportBild claim that the deal will actually be worth close to £70m to the German club.

He had seemed on the verge of a move to PSG but that move fell through, leaving the 28-year-old Gabon striker looking towards China and their exorbitant wages.

Liverpool and Chelsea have both been linked with Aubameyang but now looks set to play alongside Alex Pato and Axel Witsel in Tianjin.

Aubameyang has also been linked with a possible return to AC Milan, the club who’s youth system he progressed from.
