Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has spoken on his admiration for Borrusia Dortmund’s attacker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
“Auba is really a good guy.” he told DAZN.
“Of course, reading the newspapers, you ask yourself if all these things must happen.
“But in fact things are mostly not that controversial as they are presented. In the end everybody will be happy.
“In the first half of the season he also scored often although last summer he wanted to go to China allegedly.
“He is a great player but he does not play in a position for which we urgently need new players.” he finished.
Aubameyang has been a long term target for Arsenal this window, but a deal has yet to be finalised, The Gabonese international was signed by Klopp for Borrusia Dortmund during his spell as manager of the German team.
He has gone on to score 141 goals for Dortmund, however with Roberto Firmino playing such an important role in the Liverpool attack it is easy to see why the Reds boss would pass on the opportunity of bringing back the Klopp & Aubameyang pairing.
