Spurs have been linked with a number of different strikers this summer but the latest name to be mentioned is a class above the rest.

France Football have claimed that Tottenham could rival Arsenal for the signature of the Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabon international hit 26 goals for the German giants last season, despite Dortmund struggling in the wrong half of the league for much of the campaign.

On the face of it such a transfer seems unlikely. Aubameyang is rated at around £30m. Would Spurs really spend that much money on a forward when they already have Harry Kane to lead the line?

For an orthodox striker – perhaps not, but Aubameyang is a versatile attacker who can play as a lone forward or wide. He’s incredibly quick and would be pretty much the perfect signing for Tottenham right now. It’s a lot of money, but the club has effectively spent nothing so far this summer.

Of course, being able to afford a player is only half the battle in signing them. At 26-years old Aubameyang would no doubt be looking towards a side that could provide him with Champions League football and if Arsenal were to make a rival move, then there would be no prizes for guessing who he’d choose.

At this moment we can probably file this transfer rumour under the extremely unlikely category, but stranger things have happened.



  1. Just show him the video of jack wilshere obsessing over spurs rather than celebrating the fa cup. That will convince him to stay well clear of the worst fans the prem has had to endure

  2. At Tottenham Hotspur FC we can sell the enticing vision of playing in what is going to be the most magnificent stadium this side of the world. To be involved with a team of players who’s endeavour and mission it is to develop into a Champions League winning side. For me, this would have far more meaning and bring more sense of achievement than choosing a team already in the Champions League and losing. Arsenal does not possess a team that shows me they are a Champions League winning side. They are involved in this tournament but that’s it. They are not winners. It has to be more of a let down already knowing the team you play for is not going to win the trophy. Not as much to play for knowing your team mates aren’t up to Champions League ‘winning’ standards. THFC under the direction of Daniel Levy and with the support of Mr Lewis, they have built the most serious facilities for footballing excellence. As time goes on, it’s going to be more difficult to get into the Spurs team. When opportunity comes knocking you have to seriously consider your options.

    • Amen to that Brudda 🙂

      Seriously, though, I’m not entirely convinced that Levy would sanction such a move, and so without any specific knowledge of a bid/intended bid, I consider it to be an unsubstantiated rumour ATM. So, no.

      • You’re right SP. I doubt the purchase would be sanctioned as well and that’s ok with me. I’d like to think we would prefer players with vision and dreams of glory (along with quality skills, lol).

  3. has anyone forgotten that a few years ago we contacted his father before trying him, and he got pissed then went to Dortmund?

  4. Not a chance.Levy will probably buy some unknown non league striker or an unproven player from a foreign League.Always the cheaper option, like when HR wanted Carlos Tevez and Gary Cahill in January 2012 and got Louis Saha and Ryan Nelson……
