Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has agreed to join Paris Saint-Germain from Borussia Dortmund in a deal believed to be worth £61m.

The 27-year-old striker will join the French giants this summer after signing up to £8.75m-per-year wages and a £5m signing-on fee.

A Gabon international, Aubameyang has been linked with Europe's biggest clubs, including Liverpool, Man United and Real Madrid, but the French Cup and French League Cup holders appear to have secured his signing.

 

Aubameyang scored 40 goals in all competitions last season, including the winner in the German Cup final, and clinched the Bundesliga Golden Boot with 31 goals, taking his tally to 120 goals in 189 matches in four seasons in Germany.

 

While PSG have also been keen on Alexis Sanchez, they appear to be behind Manchester City and Chelsea in the queue. Most importantly, though, they are also behind Bayern Munich - where Sanchez may be forced to head if Arsenal flatly refuse to sell to a Premier League rival.
