Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard says Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is exactly what the Reds need

Steven Gerrard has earmarked Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the ideal man to lead the line for Liverpool, but admits the pacey forward is in high demand.

Aubameyang has established himself as one of the world’s most prolific strikers, scoring goals for fun in the Bundesliga to keep Dortmund’s title hopes alive.

The Gabon forward was on fire recently, plundering a hat-trick as his side defeated Benfica 4-0 in the Champions League round of 16 second leg, and the onlooking Gerrard was more than impressed by what he saw.

The Liverpool legend was asked on air by his fellow BT Sport pundit Gary Lineker whether the Dortmund man is exactly what his former club are searching for.

‘Yeah, but if he’s in this type of form, he’ll alert a lot of clubs not just Liverpool,’ said Gerrard.

‘He attacks the frame all the time and he gets tap-ins because of his movement,’ the former England captain added.

Aubameyang currently leads the way in the German scoring charts this season, keeping the likes of prolific Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski at bay.

After 21 games played Aubameyang boasts an incredible ratio of 21 goals scored, with the latter end of the season still to play.

Gerrard will be hoping his eye for identifying talent can also play to his advantage in his new role within the Liverpool academy set up.

The former Liverpool No 8 watched on recently as the club’s Under 18 side took on rivals Manchester United on a chilly Friday night in Altrincham.

Gerrard – joined by other fellow ex-pros Steve McManaman and Rob Jones – watched a fractious match end 2-2, with Liverpool finishing the game with 10 men.

Second of all, Americans will have no choice but to wean themselves off oil. The majority of the wo;rl&#39ds giant oil fields are in decline. The world needs to discover and bring online a Saudia Arabia every three years just to offset erosion of the existing production base. There will be no cars running on oil-based fuels in 40 years ….

    There are certainly quite a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a nice point to convey up. I supply the ideas above as common inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you carry up where the most important thing might be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged round issues like that, but I’m sure that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Both boys and girls really feel the impression of just a seconds pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
