Chelsea’s attacking target will leave for £54m, 96 goal superstar could arrive at Stamford Bridge in January

Posted by

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang could leave Borussia Dortmund in January for £54m with Premier League club Chelsea keeping close tabs on the star.

A report from German outlet Bild has stated that Dortmund are ready to allow Aubameyang to leave in January if a fee of £54m (€60m) is met.

The Sun have reported that Chelsea will lead the way to sign the 28-year-old with Manchester City and AC Milan also interested in the star.

It appears that the pressure has got to the Dortmund manager Peter Bosz after a mixed start to their 2017/18 season with the manager now ready to let go of his controversial star Aubameyang at the nearest possible opportunity.

Dortmund are currently on course to exit the Champions League in the group stage with the German side falling considerably off the pace of Real Madrid and Tottenham in their group. Further, in the Bundesliga the side currently sit in fourth place and are eight points off of the leaders Bayern Munich already.

While it appears that Dortmund no longer want their star striker and would rather cash in on him, he would be a superb acquisition for any club.

The star has 96 goals in just four Bundesliga seasons and is the joint top all-time African goalscorer in the history of the league.

He certainly would not be a bad acquisition for Chelsea and we are sure that Antonio Conte’s head will have been turned given this recent news.
