Chelsea are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to Sky Sports.
As per Sky Sports, the Blues are in the hunt for a new centre-forward, with Diego Costa poised to leave Stamford Bridge this transfer window. It is believed that having missed out on Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, Antonio Conte has another striker in his sights.
Sky Sports report that Conte is a big fan of Aubameyang, and the Gabonese international is on the Italian’s summer transfer wish-list, alongside Real Madrid hitman Alvaro Morata and Torino goal-machine Andrea Belotti.
If Sky Sports are to be believed, Dortmund will give the green light to Aubameyang’s departure this summer if they receive an offer in the region of £70M.
It is claimed that Aubameyang has already informed the Bundesliga heavyweights of his intention to leave the club this summer. Bookmakers have certainly slashed the odds on this player joining Chelsea and a review of BetOnline.ag will give you the best price.
It’s about time that Roman Abramovich opened his chequebook, give Conte what he wants.
