Chelsea target Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could still be available this summer as Borussia Dortmund have reportedly changed their stance on the player, according to the Daily Express.

Although the club have previously stated that they would not be looking to sell the Gabon international after just one season, it is now claimed that they have made a u-turn on that decision and will allow the 24-year-old to leave.

Aubameyang was signed from Ligue 1 side Saint-Etienne last summer and had been linked with a whole host of Premier League clubs after his impressive displays, and he remains a highly regarded talent after 13 goals and four assists in the Bundesliga this season.

Newcastle United are also mentioned as admirers of his this summer as they seek new attacking signings for next season, with loan signing Loic Remy unlikely to make a permanent move to St James’ Park from Queens Park Rangers.

Chelsea could line up with a largely new-look attack next season, with the likes of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Romelu Lukaku all looking likely to leave the club, while Aubameyang could join alongside £32m Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.

Dortmund, meanwhile, have already brought in two new strikers to replace the departing Robert Lewandowski.
