Liverpool CEO Peter Moore is giving little away when it comes to the club’s reported interest in Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Reds are among those believed to be considering an approach for the prolific Gabon international.
A £63 million move has been mooted, with Jurgen Klopp open to bringing added firepower into his ranks – having already wrapped up a deal for Mohamed Salah.
Supporters are understandably excited by the prospect of a proven frontman moving to Anfield and have taken the opportunity to quiz Moore on Twitter.
Not that he was prepared to be drawn on the subject, with a tongue-in-cheek response offered to the suggestion that the club should lodge a big-money bid.

Moore became Liverpool’s CEO in February and is active on social media.
He has, however, been around long enough to know that speculating on possible deals ahead of a window is rarely a good idea.
Aubameyang is an obvious target for Europe’s top clubs, though, as his strike rate in Germany has helped to raise his profile.
Having previously been a regular source of goals in France with St Etienne, the 28-year-old has netted 120 times in 189 appearances for Dortmund – with Liverpool boss Klopp having snapped him up in 2013.
