Roma are prepared to sell Adem Ljajic plus cash for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
According to French newspaper L’Equipe, Borussia Dortmund are in an increasingly tense situation with Gabon international Aubameyang, who only joined a year ago for €13m plus €2m in add-ons.
This has sparked reports in Italy that Roma are diving in with a bid.
Although there is talk of a buy-out clause worth €8m, Borussia seem determined to hold out for €18m.
Aubameyang would be an ideal option for Roma, as he fits into Rudi Garcia’s system and has already worked with the Coach at Lille in 2009-10.
He is also familiar with Italy, having growing up in the Milan youth academy.
The other interesting element in this story is the knowledge Borussia Dortmund are interested in Roma forward Ljajic.
The ex-Fiorentina talent hasn’t quite delivered on his promise and question marks remain over his attitude.
It could suit both clubs and players for an exchange to go through.
