Everton: Sam Allardyce’s claim that he tried to sign Aubameyang has supporters in hysterics

Everton: Sam Allardyce’s claim that he tried to sign Aubameyang has supporters in hysterics

Speaking to talkSPORT via the Liverpool Echo, former Everton manager Sam Allardyce has revealed that he once tried to sign Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang while he was a Borussia Dortmund player – with many Toffees supporters since laughing off the notion. 

Allardyce, who took charge following Ronald Koeman’s dismissal in late 2017, eventually led Everton to an eighth-placed finish despite a poor start to that campaign. Regardless, the club opted to appoint Marco Silva on a permanent basis after the season’s conclusion, with Allardyce since going on to talk regularly as a pundit.

Speaking to talkSPORT, former England boss Allardyce claimed that he once tried to sign Gunners forward Aubameyang to cope with the departed Romelu Lukaku – suggesting that his team needed goals and the Gabon hitman was in superb form. Instead, Everton opted to sign Cenk Tosun for £27 million that January window – resulting in supporters roasting the ex-Toffees gaffer.

Here’s what they had to say on Twitter.
