Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be fuelled by the idea of revenge when Borussia Dortmund face Tottenham on Wednesday after failed transfer talks with Spurs in 2012.

The Gabon striker has previously revealed that the Premier League side approached him five years ago when he was playing for Saint-Etienne before a move failed to materialise, criticising them for things getting « weird ».

Now, Aubameyang has claimed that talks were so advanced that he visited White Hart Lane and Spurs’ training ground.

A year after the deal broke down the striker moved to Borussia Dortmund and has been a huge success – including 40 goals across all competitions last season – but he was happy to admit that the idea of getting one over Spurs was an appealing one.
