Di Marzio: City optimistic of closing a deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, talks ongoing

Manchester City are closing in on Borussia Dortmund superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in what would be one of the biggest transfers of the summer. These are the words of Gianluca Di Marzio, Europe’s most respected transfer source.

According to Di Marzio, there have been productive talks between City and Dortmund in recent hours, with City chiefs optimistic of agreeing a deal with both club and player. Other clubs want the Gabonese international, but it appears City have surpassed Aubameyang’s other suitors in the race.

No fee is mentioned, but 26-year-old Aubameyang won’t come cheap. He scored 39 goals in 46 games for Borussia Dortmund last season, and is one of the fastest players in Europe. For sure, this would be a huge signing for City, who are working hard to get a deal done according to the respected Di Marzio.

A recent report by France Football claiming City were in talks to sign Aubameyang was met with some skepticism, but tonight’s report by the Sky Italia guru has City fans around the world excited.

Will this man be City’s next marquee signing?
