Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (masked) is set to become the first £100million player, according to latest research.

With Paul Pogba becoming the first £89million pound following his move to Manchester United from Juventus last summer, Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to break Pogba's world record transfer fee and become the first ever £100million star, according to new research.

According to a new study, the Gabon international is ahead of Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann in terms of potential price tag, reports the Daily Mail.

The striker has scored 25 goals in 25 Bundesliga games this season and has previously attracted interest from Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, Dortmund have insisted the striker is not leaving the club, despite being linked with a summer move away.

“As of yet, I have no information that suggests Auba will leave Dortmund,” the club's chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke recently told Sport Bild.

“There are not an awful lot of clubs that would be a step forward for him in my opinion. Either way, he will only leave Dortmund for an outrageous transfer fee if he does move.”
