Pierre Emerick Aubameyang

Borussia Dortmund have set their asking price for striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to Bild.

The Independent reported during the summer window that Aubameyang was on the transfer radar of the Premier League champions. However, the move never materialised, with Chelsea signing Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid and Aubameyang staying put in Dortmund.

Could the embers of Chelsea’s interest in the Gabon international be reignited in January? That remains to be seen, but if the Blues do reenter the race to sign Aubameyang, they will have to break the bank to secure his services.

As per Bild, Dortmund will allow Aubameyang to depart if an offer in the region of €60M (£53.7M) is made, only time will tell if that’s a price we’d be willing to pay.

Spend the money elsewhere…

Antonio Conte has opted to field Morata and Eden Hazard upfront in recent weeks and he has reaped the rewards. It would be strange to sign a new striker in January who would expect to be starting, and potentially disrupt the status quo.
