Aubameyang impresses Barca?

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has emerged as a reported target for Barcelona as they remain on the lookout for Pedro Rodriguez's successor.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Catalans have kept tabs on the Borussia Dortmund forward for some time and are impressed by his sustained progression at Signal Iduna Park.

Capable of playing anywhere in attack, the 26-year-old is known for his pace, athleticism and goalscoring ability, having netted 56 times in 107 appearances for BVB since 2013.

However, the Gabon international extended his contract until 2020 in July and is considered Dortmund's first-choice striker, making him a potentially-expensive option.

Barca's need for attacking reinforcements has been exacerbated by recent injuries to Lionel Messi and Rafinha, leaving Neymar and Luis Suarez as the club's only senior forwards.
