Latest reports suggest that Everton could well be in line to make a sensational bid for Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the January transfer window.

Aubameyang, 28, has expressed his desire to leave German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund, with Chelsea previously tipped as a possible destination for the speedster.

According to The Sun, Everton are willing to make a £60 million bid for Aubameyang who has in the past underlined his desire to play for Real Madrid.

Everton failed to find a suitable replacement for now Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku in the European summer, and it showed, as they've struggled for goals.

The Toffees' poor run of form at the start of the season ultimately resulted in Ronald Koeman leaving the club with Sam Allardyce having since taken over the reins at Goodison Park.

Aubameyang has scored 19 goals in 20 appearances across all competitions this season, but has missed two of the club's last three games due to disciplinary issues and suspension respectively.
