Chelsea are reportedly prepared to bid for Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as he’s set to be allowed a transfer away next summer.
The Gabon international has been in sensational form for the Bundesliga giants over the last couple of years, attracting interest from a host of Europe’s top clubs.
Arsenal reportedly made a bid for him last January, while Real Madrid also continue to be linked as strong contenders for his signature due to his public desire to play in Spain.
However, the Daily Mirror now claim Chelsea and Manchester City are leading contenders for the 27-year-old as he’s set to leave Germany at the end of this season.
Chelsea are certainly keen to improve their attack, with recent links to big moves for Antoine Griezmann and Felipe Anderson.
It is expected that Aubameyang would cost somewhere in the region of £65million, which would be a club record for Chelsea and for City.
