Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang has been recently excluded from Borussia Dortmund’s provisional squad for Stuttgart clash following his ill-discipline. Then he came back in action against Schalke 04 in the Revierderby, scoring once before he was shown a red card in the second half.

Also manager Peter Bosz, speaking following the dramatic 4-4 draw, added fuel to fire by saying: “you can’t do things like that” when asked on the dismissal of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

And Borussia Dortmund, as Daily Mail reported earlier this morning, has offered the Gabon international striker to Chelsea as the Premier League champions could place a bid when transfer market window reopens in January.

The Gabon international had been previously and heavily linked with a move to Chelsea and AC Milan, but Borussia’s sporting director Michael Zorc said today: “We have decided that Auba will stay with BVB, so the transfer window is closed for him.”

Chelsea need to sign a striker to replace Diego Costa and they have some options in this summer transfer window, AubameyangBelotti and Morata among them.

According to pundit Steve Nicol the best of them will be Alvaro Morata:

“If I was Chelsea, I would take Morata,” Nicol said on ESPN FC – I think he’s the guy that fits the Costa mould more than any of the other two. He’s a guy who will score goals and he’s a guy who will hold it up and link the play.”

According to Sky Sports Chelsea are interested in signing Sergio Aguero.

The Blues are looking for a striker who can replace Diego Costa and, after missing out on Romelu Lukaku, their attentions have been focused on Aubameyang, Morata, Belotti and now also Sergio Aguero.

After considering to leave Real Madrid in the past two months Alvaro Morata joined the Champions of Europe again for their pre-season tour in the USA and now the striker he is not convinced to make a move out anymore.

Apparentely, the Merengues boss Zinedine Zidane told Morata he will have more chances as a starter in the upcoming season and now the Spanish forward – who almost completed a move to Manchester United, that eventually signed Romelu Lukaku – doesn’t seem so keen to consider a transfer to Chelsea, who approached him in the attempt to replace Diego Costa, set to leave the club to return to Atletico Madrid after breaking up with the manager Antonio Conte.

Now for Chelsea there are just two big names left to revamp their attack: Torino talent Andrea Belotti and Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

English sources confirm Chelsea have entered the race to sign Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabon international was targeted also by Chinese Super League side Tianjin Quanjian ( the same club that approached Diego Costa back in January) but the striker would prefer to stay in Europe.

AC Milan are also interested in him, since the forward was also part of their academy and was sold in 2011 to St. Etienne, but Aubameyang is not so keen for a return to the Italian side, who didn’t believe in him when he was younger.

The French born forward is attracted by the super offer that Tianjin submitted to him but Chelsea are ready to splash £ 60m to sign the 28-year-old after missing the signing of Romelu Lukaku, who preferred a move to Manchester United.

Aubameyang started the pre-season with Borussia Dortmund one week ago, but today he posted an enigmatic picture on his Instagram account, a photo of him ready to board a private jet in a total blue outfit and the line ” mood of the day”: is he ready to move to Chelsea?

Chelsea are desperately looking for a striker to replace Diego Costa, set to leave to join Atletico Madrid back after breaking up with manager Antonio Conte.

After missing to sign Romelu Lukaku, who moved to Manchester United instead, the Blues targeted Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick AubameyangSpanish sources claim it’s a done deal Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata and Torino top scorer Andrea “Il Gallo” Belotti.

Granata chairman Urbano Cairo insisted that the clubs aiming to sign the Italian striker need to pay the entire release clause:

“He has a €100m release clause. For now no-one has come in for him. I’m glad he’s with us and I hope he can stay.

I want to understand his intentions, I’m happy for him to stay, not least because we’ve given up interesting options which didn’t reach the €100m clause.

“They weren’t real offers, but there were contacts. I don’t want to imagine a Toro without Il Gallo.

“Tonight I’ll have a meal with [coach Sinisa] Mihajlovic and [sporting director Gianluca] Petrachi, we’ll talk about everything and you understand we also have to think about this possibility.

Spanish outlet Marca broke the news, that has to be confirmed: Chelsea sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for £ 60m.

The Borussia Dortmund star was set to leave the German club this summer and was targeted also by PSG, AC Milan and Tianjin Quanjian but according to Spanish reports he chose Chelsea, who were ready to bid £ 60m to secure his services.

The 28-year-old is going to replace Diego Costa, who is going to leave the Blues and is currently negotiating his return to Atletico Madrid, the club who left in summer 2014 to move to Stamford Bridge.

After losing Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, Chelsea are targeting other strikers to revamp their attack and to replace Diego Costa, who is set to leave after his bust-up with manager Antonio Conte in the past season.

Not only Real Madrid star Alvaro Morata is on the Italian coach list: the new name is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabon international is set to leave Borussia Dortmund after four years and was targeted by Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan as well.

Aubameyang grew-up in the Rossoneri academy as a player and the Italian side are keen to sign him back, but they have already spent € 160m in their transfer window so far and it’s difficult they could match both request: Borussia, that want to sell Aubameyang for at least € 75m ( £ 65m) and the player’s one, who is demanding € 10m ( £ 8.5m) per year.

The 28-year-old would prefer a Premier League move to a Ligue 1 one, that’s why Chelsea have got more chances to sign him than PSG.

But the negotiation is just at the beginning, so it’s possible it won’t be really quick.
