With 18 goals this season in the Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads the race for the European Golden Shoe. However, if he were to sign for an English club during January, he would change the course of the Premier League.

Whilst every football fan was lauding Jamie Vardy for his goalscoring exploits in England's top flight, Aubameyang was scoring in each of his first eight league matches, eventually leading to 17 goals in 14 appearances.

Having spent most of last season playing out wide for Dortmund under Jurgen Klopp, the Gabonese striker has been given the chance to lead the line under new manager Thomas Tuchel - and to great effect.

After finding the back of the net 16 times in 2014/15, Aubameyang surpassed that tally before the Christmas break. In fact, across all competitions, the 26-year-old has scored 28 goals in 21 appearances.

There is no reason why the Gabon international wouldn't fancy a move to the Premier League - and interest will no doubt he high. There are a number of English suitors who will like what they see, knowing Aubameyang could potentially provide 10-15 league goals between now and the end of the season.

Most recently, the former St Etienne striker has been linked with a some £40 million move to Arsenal. The Gunners are in with a very good chance of winning the league and signing Aubameyang, with his pace, movement and clinical finishing, would certainly make them favourites for the title.

Alternatively, Chelsea are believed to have a long-standing interest in the pacey forward. The Blues are not in the title race, of course, but the signing of Aubameyang could be the miracle they need to climb back into a top four place.

In the most unpredictable of Premier League seasons, signing the Dortmund striker could prove the difference between a title challenge or fight for a European place.

If any club has the finances to bring in Aubameyang - which England's big guns certainly have - they should.
