Andre Villas-Boas turned down the chance to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during his time as Tottenham manager, according to journalist Graham Hunter.

Hunter was speaking on his podcast, The Big Interview, when he revealed Villas-Boas opted against bringing Aubameyang to Spurs despite a number of recommendations.

The striker went on to become one of Europe’s most prolific goal scorers for Borussia Dortmund.¬†In 46 appearances in all competitions last season, Aubameyang scored 40 goals.

Hunter said: “For Daniel Levy it’s still a massive thorn in his side.”

Tottenham will host Dortmund and Aubameyang in the first Champions League group stage match later this month — you already know what’s going to happen, don’t you?
