New AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia wants to boost their attack with a deal for St Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Sportmediaset says Garcia knows all about the Gabon ace after seeing him up close while in charge of Lille and rates the former AC Milan junior highly.

Aubameyang is wanted by the likes of Arsenal, Newcastle United and Borussia Dortmund, but favours a return to Italy.

Garcia has told Roma chief Walter Sabatini to compete for Aubameyang's signature and has also given his approval to the sale of Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.
