Allardyce wants Aubameyang for Everton

There's a new boss at Goodison Park, and his first move is to find a replacement for departed frontman Romelu Lukaku. Sam Allardyce has taken the reins over at Everton, and, according to the Mirror, his first move will be to make a bold60 million move to bringPierre-Emerick Aubameyangover from Borussia Dortmund next summer.

Lukaku took his 25 goals from 2016-17 to Manchester United during the latest window, and so far, the combination of Wayne Rooney, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin has not managed to make up for the loss of the Belgium international.

A woeful start to the campaign saw manager Ronald Koeman sacked, and now Allardyce, whose Toffees sit mid-table after some recent positive results, is already looking to next season and a goals influx in the form of Aubameyang.

The Gabon international already has 19 goals in all competitions for Dortmund, but Everton wo not have it easy, as Liverpool and Chelsea are also rumoured to be interested in making Aubameyang's Premier League dream come true.
