Quanjian is also willing to pay Dortmund €80 million (close to £68 million) to buy the Gabonese captain out of the remaining three years of his contract at the Westfalenstadion.

This deal, which would see Aubameyang earning over £800,000 every week, would make him the world's highest paid footballer.
