Aubameyang has been linked with Real Madrid and Barcelona throughout his career.

But former Gunners scout Mislintat, who signed the striker from Borussia Dortmund, was quoted by The Athletic saying: "He is one, maybe the only one, this exceptional top striker, who is an absolute team player.

"Perhaps this attitude cost him the opportunity to play for clubs like Real Madrid or Barcelona.

"A striker like Neymar or (Sergio) Aguero, for example, would never give up a penalty. I like his attitude. He is good for the team atmosphere."

Phillips has revealed that Klopp personally called Stuttgart sporting director Sven Mislintat to help him secure a loan move to the German club this summer.

Phillips, 22, joined the Bundesliga 2 side on a season-long loan shortly after signing a long-term contract with the Reds.

The former Bolton Wanderers youngster has already made two league appearances for Stuttgart following the club's relegation from the German top flight last season.

I told Jurgen Klopp about a few offers I had, Stuttgart was not one of them at that time" Phillips told BILD.

Jurgen was not enthusiastic about the options and I think he called Sven Mislintat shortly after our meeting.

Klopp congratulated me on this move and he immediately wrote me a message on his phone: 'Good club, great city, my birthplace, I wish you a great time."

Rajkovic spent the past three years with Italian club Palermo but was released after they finished bottom of Serie B last summer.

A 16-year-old Rajkovic signed for Chelsea in 2005.

The centre-back, tipped to succeed John Terry in defence, had spent the previous summer at Arsenal's youth camp.

Andre Villas-Boas gave the Serbian centre-back his first start for Chelsea, in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Wycombe Wanderers in 2011.

That same year Rajkovic was sold to Hamburg in a 1.8m deal.

His career never really ignited, making just 42 appearances for the German side in four years.

A PSV source told De Telegraaf: "Jahanbakhsh was a top player in the Eredivisie.

"He knows what is being asked of him and is above all a different type of attacker than the club has in house."

The German was hired as head of recruitment at Arsenal before leaving after just 14 months to become Stuttgart's sporting director.

"Last summer there were leadership changes at Arsenal," Mislintat told 11Freunde.

"It had actually been agreed that I would become technical director, so then I would be around the team on a daily basis.

"But the new leadership had their own agenda and other candidates. On top of that, we had different approaches.

"Previously we had a strong systematic approach to transfers, a mixture of watching things live as well as quality data and video analysis, Arsenal actually owns their own data company.

"That meant that we acted independently, we knew about all markets and players in all positions that came into question.

"However, the new leadership work more strongly with what they are offered from clubs or agents through their own networks."
