Chelsea getting closer to landing world class hit man

According to the latest transfer gossip, Chelsea has been offered the opportunity to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The English media are claiming that Chelsea have been told that they can sign the Gabon International in the winter transfer window when it opens in January.

Relations between Aubameyang and his club have all but broken down and matters were not helped when he was sent off in last weekends remarkable 4-4 draw with Schalke after Dortmund were leading 4-0.

Basically, Dortmund has run out of patience with the striker and simply want rid of him now and that is why he is being offered to Chelsea.

It should be noted that the Blues are not the only club to be offered the 28-year-old and a bidding war could be about to start.

Aubameyang will not come cheap, he is a high-class player and prolific goalscorer and there is certain to be a lot of interest in his services, though he has not helped himself by constantly getting into trouble this season.
