Stamford Bridge side want Saint-Etienne forward.
Chelsea are to join the race to sign Saint-Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang according to the Daily Express.
fanatix tickets – Manchester City vs Chelsea tickets are on sale from £48 for the match on February 24th at the Etihad Stadium.
The West London side are looking for striking alternatives with big money flop Fernando Torres apparently likely to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.
The 23 year old French born Gabon international is a former graduate of the AC Milan youth team but failed to make the grade in Italy but has found his feet at Saint-Etienne.
Aubameyang scored 18 goals in all competitions last term and has continued that form this term, scoring 12 goals in Ligue 1 alone, only Zlatan Ibrahimovic has managed more during the current campaign.
Monaco, PSG and Fiorentina are all also tracking the powerful forward, who is well built to succeed in the physical confines of the English top tier.
Aubameyang would presumably jump at the chance of a move to Stamford Bridge and would be more likely to consider such a switch if indeed Torres was out of the picture, leaving the Saint-Etienne man to battle Demba Ba and Romelu Lukaku for a starting spot in the Blues front-line.
