AC Milan striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has agreed to join Lille on a season-long loan.

The highly-rated teenager has spent the 2008/9 campaign with Ligue 2 side Dijon and he will gain experience at a higher level next term.

Aubameyang, who is expected to one day forge a devastating partnership with Alexandre Pato at the San Siro, is looking forward to the challenge.

He hopes to improve during his second stint in France before returning to Milan to challenge for a first-team spot.

"It will be another good experience for me as I continue to learn my trade," the 19-year-old Gabon international told skysports.com.

"My dream is to play for Milan and one day win the Champions League.

"I will stay here and learn more about professional football, and try to score goals in the French league."
