Multiple British journalists have moved to deny rumours linking Manchester City with Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Reports flew in on Monday that the Gabonese is a top target for Guardiola but multiple outlets have denied the rumours, with James Robson of the Manchester Evening News saying the club itself has “killed links”:
The Citizens already boast an impressive attack and added Bernardo Silva to the mix after the 2016-17 campaign concluded. With Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero likely to split attacking duties next year, the Sky Blues hardly need another star forward.
Aubameyang has been Dortmund’s top striker since Robert Lewandowski departed the Sigma Iduna Park for Bayern Munich in 2014, but the 28-year-old could move this summer as BVB continue their youth movement.
City have enough financial muscle to add the speedster and still address their other needs, but a transfer to a different club seems more likely.
However, PSG and Liverpool remains two of the top clubs heavily linked to the powerful striker.
