Paris Saint-Germain are poised to make a 70-million-euro ($76.5 million) offer to Borussia Dortmund for striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, a report in Germany said on Thursday.

Bild says the French-born hot-shot, who has scored 35 goals this season, has already met PSG director of football Patrick Kluivert in Paris and would double his salary.

The German daily says the French club and the player are on the verge of an agreement.

Dortmund are set to receive an offer from PSG when their season finishes after the German Cup final on May 27 against Eintracht Frankfurt.

PSG salary

Aubameyang, 27, could reportedly earn up to 14 million euros per season at PSG.

The Gabon international, who was born in France, has repeatedly said he wants to eventually join Real Madrid or at least play in the Spanish league, but he has family in Paris.

The striker has three years left on his Dortmund contract, but has hinted he may leave at the end of the season and the German club has not ruled out selling him.

Positive step claims Podolski 

Ex-Germany striker Lukas Podolski says it would be a good move for Aubameyang. "He comes from France, speaks the language, his family is there," Podolski wrote in a column for Bild last week. "But he has to ask himself: do I have the same feeling as in Dortmund?

"He is the superstar at Borussia. Saint-Germain has lots of them. "Plus Dortmund is also among the top eight to 10 clubs in the world and he enjoys certain liberties there.

"Would he get the same at another club?"
