After encountering a major roadblock in their quest to bring back Romelu Lukaku to Stamford Bridge, Chelsea has been made favourites to sign Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gabonese attacker finished this season as the German league’s top scorer and netted 40 goals in just 46 games for his German team. His German adventure seems over after falling into trouble with both the club’s board and former manager Thomas Tuchel this season.
Aubameyang is one of the most prolific attackers in world football right now after netting 120 goals for Borussia Dortmund. He does not lack suitors and has been linked with several top teams around the world including Asia.
Chelsea’s quest to replace Diego Costa remains high as they consider moves for Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata. However, Aubameyang is both a cheaper alternative as well as a more proven goal scorer.
Despite being the favourites with the bookies, Chelsea will have to offer Aubameyang a huge wage, otherwise, he could end up in China.
