Chelsea days away from signing £65m striker

     Chelsea want to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after missing out on Romelu Lukaku, according to Sky sources. The Blues are intent on signing a world-class striker this summer, with Diego Costa also set to leave Stamford Bridge.

The Blues looked set to re-sign Romelu Lukaku from Everton this summer. But they are now having to explore alternative targets after Manchester United hijacked their bid for the Belgium international.

And, according to The Mirror, Chelsea have opted to pursue a big-money move for Aubameyang, 28. The Gabon striker has emerged as one of Europe's most prolific forwards during his time at the Westfalenstadion. He made 46 appearances in all competitions, scoring an impressive 40 goals in the process.

Dortmund will let Aubameyang go this summer for about £70m and he has told the club he wants to leave, with both AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain already holding talks to sign him, and a move to Tianjin Quanjian collapsed last week.
