Report: PSG Agree Deal For First Major Signing Of The Season

Just a day after announcing that Thomas Tuchel has left the club comes news of another possible major departure from the Westfalenstadion.

According to Yahoo France, PSG have agreed a deal with Dortmund for star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabon foward has been at the Bundesliga side for four seasons, joining from Saint-Étienne in 2013. In those four seasons, the 27-year-old has hit 85 goals in the Bundesliga and 113 in all competitions. 41 of those goals came this season alone.

Aubameyang, who was named Bundesliga Player of the Season for 2015/16, has been the subject of much interest from some of Europe's biggest clubs.

The deal is said to be worth around €70 million with only the details of the player's contract standing between him and playing for the Ligue 1 runners-up next season.

A deal of €10 million per season had reportedly been offered to Aubameyang along with a signing bonus of €6 million.

Adding fuel to the speculation that the player will return to France are reports that he has already purchased a property in a Paris suburb.
