The Toffees have been linked with the prolific Gabonese striker as they seek to bolster a forward line which has struggled since losing Romelu Lukaku to Man Utd.

Aubameyang has repeatedly been linked with a move away from the German giants in recent years, with the likes of Real Madrid, Liverpool and Man City mentioned as potential suitors.

"In January we will end up with the fella who sells chewies and lollipops in the toilets in the Revolution in town as a last minute loan deal when Aubamemyang falls through,” one wrote.

Another said: “It's just not gonna happen. Let's move on.”

"Scenes when [Farhad] Moshiri jets Aubamemyang into Liverpool then big Sam takes him the Harlech for a pint and keeps calling him Patrick,” joked another.
