Chelsea appear to be lining up a move for Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, which would be a great move for the Blues. However, the German giants won’t dare let their star go away cheap, and Chelsea may be forced to spend a whole lot more than they can afford – at least without selling off some of their talent.
There are many good options Chelsea can pursue in the transfer window without needing to break the bank for Aubameyang. Felipe Anderson and Batshuayi would be several young options to pursue, or they could go with an accomplished veteran like Ronaldo if they’re dead set on selling the talent.
Here are the five players Chelsea should sign instead of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang:
