The Arsenal front guy could be on the move soon as he enters the final year of his contract. However, Anfield may not be the right place.
Former Liverpool striker Emile Heskey doesn’t think Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are a good match for Jurgen Klopp’s side, and instead pointed to the abilities of Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz or RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner.
Aubameyang is entering the last year of his contract in the Emirates and as such has attracted transfer links to a range of clubs including the Reds, in addition to Chelsea, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.
With Klopp having coached the Gabon global for 2 seasons in Borussia Dortmund, some believe that the preceding connection between the pair would result in a fantastic game at Anfield, but former England striker Heskey is of another opinion.
“Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a wonderful goal-getter,” he advised GentingBet.
He’s displaying time and time again that he’s a goal scorer. He is playing in an Arsenal side that is not really fancied in the vicinity of the league but he is going out and scoring week in and week out.
“He is hard for the Golden Boot. He is Mr. Consistent. However, will he fit in the Liverpool system? Probably not. I don’t think he would be a perfect match for Liverpool.”
The former Dortmund striker might not be on Heskey’s wishlist for Liverpool, but others that have shone in the Bundesliga could make adequate additions in his view.
“Thus, adding that into the existing Liverpool side is always excellent. You always need choices. When you’ve got a young, hungry lad comes in, it puts stress on the more senior players to go out there and perform.
“When you are bringing in young players, you need ones that are tried and tested, that understands what it takes to perform at the top level.
“Those players are always going to be an advantage. Werner appears phenomenal, his pace looks wonderful. Klopp obviously knows a whole lot about the German league also, so I am sure he will be eager to get his teeth stuck into him.”
