VfL Wolfsburg v Borussia Dortmund - Bundesliga
Will Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leave Borussia Dortmund this month?

Transfer rumours linking Liverpool with some of Europe's best players continue following the departure of Philippe Coutinho. The Reds have recently been tipped to pursue Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who could reportedly leave the German Bundesliga side in this transfer window in search of a new challenge.

The striker arrived at the Signal Iduna Park in 2013 and has since caught the eye of some of the continent's biggest clubs with consistent performances for Dortmund. Aubameyang is likely to command a huge transfer fee should Liverpool be interested in him but here are five reasons why he could just be worth it.

Tottenham Hotspur v Borussia Dortmund - UEFA Champions League
Aubameyang is known as one of the Bundesliga's deadliest finishers.

The first and most obvious reason why any club would buy Aubameyang is his excellent ability to score goals. The Gabon international is considered one of the deadliest finishers both in the Bundesliga and Europe, as his 18 goals in all competitions for Dortmund can attest.

Over his time in Germany, Aubameyang's goals have been a consistent story of improvement. From scoring 13 goals in his debut Bundesliga season, the striker has gone on to score 16 in 2014/15, 25 in 2015/16 and his best career tally of 31 last season.

Add to this the fact that the Dortmund striker is a poacher, who tends to get into advanced positions and can score using both feet or his head and Liverpool would be getting an all-round goal-scorer should they purchase Aubameyang.
