CONFIRMED – Chelsea in the race to sign Aubameyang

by -

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?
