Dortmund Fly In To St.Etienne For Talks On Newcastle ‘Target’

9 years ago

While the fans of Newcastle United wait for any sign of incoming transfer activity, one player repeatedly linked with a move to St.James’ Park looks to be heading elsewhere.

Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looks certain to leave St.Etienne this summer and Borussia Dortmund is now looking the most likely destination.

Le Progres is Lyon’s regional newspaper (Lyon is only 31 miles from St.Etienne) and they have reported that a Dortmund representative has arrived in Saint-Etienne to discuss Aubameyang. (Thanks as ever to Pierre for our French coverage/translation)

Aubameyang to Dortmund?

It seems that the move of the ASSE ‘s (St.Etienne’s) Aubameyang going to Dortmund is going … slowly.

Too slowly in the eyes of the Gabonese striker who wishes for his future  to be sorted  as soon as possible.

Are the positions of the two clubs so far apart? However, we understand that a Dortmund representative arrived in Saint-Etienne this morning.

At the same time the proposal of the Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala is probably the most interesting (more money) for ASSE but it does not appeal to Aubamayang.

Obviously Newcastle’s move is staying under the radar…
