Manchester City set to lose out on prime summer target
Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has met with Paris Saint-Germain and is reportedly on the verge of signing for the French champions, per Metro.
Aubamryang has been in excellent form once again this season, scoring 35 goals for Dortmund as they reached the Champions League quarter finals.
The Gabon star is said to be a target for Manchester City, who had been interested in a player-plus-cash deal involving young striker Kelechi Iheanacho.
But now it appears PSG have stolen a march in the race for him, with Bild reporting sporting director Patrick Kluivert has agreed at three-year contract worth £42million with Aubameyang.

The small matter of a transfer fee is yet to be sorted, but the article suggests Dortmund would be looking for a sum of around £60million.
Aubameyang had previously suggested Real Madrid were the only club for him, but PSG are making a big statement after a poor season which could see them miss out on the Ligue 1 title to Monaco.
