Manchester City are ready to make a £58 million move for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as a replacement for Sergio Aguero, according to The Express.
Pep Guardiola has ruffled a few feathers since arriving at the Premier League club, with Joe Hart and Yaya Toure sent to the fringes under the Catalan coach.

Aguero could well be the latest high-profile casualty of the former Bayern Munich trainer’s tenure, with the Argentine striker omitted from the City team that faced Barcelona in midweek.
Talk in the press has stated that Guardiola is not completely happy with the South American’s attitude, with talk the former Atletico Madrid man could be replaced by the Gabon international.
Aubameyang has been a goal machine in the Bundesliga for a number of years and is repeatedly linked with a move to some of the Premier League’s biggest teams.
In reality, Aguero is one of the best strikers in world football and it would be a major shock if Guardiola sold the Argentina international.
I believe Aubameyang is the final piece to The Arsenal jigsaw. No point blowing £30m on 2 randoms. Just put the £60m on Dortmund’s table now

However, if Aubameyang is available Arsenal should be in the running to sign the Dortmund star.
The Gunners fans have called on Arsene Wenger to land a world-class centre forward over recent years and the former Saint Etienne man would suit the North London club’s style of play perfectly.
