Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking at the news from the Daily Star (via the Sun on Sunday) with sheer excitement, as the publication suggests Chelsea are planning a £20 million bid for Borussia Dortmund hotshot Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gabon striker has been simply sensational for the Bundesliga giants this season, scoring 23 goals in 21 appearances for the club – and our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern feels the pacy forward is easily the most talented striker in Europe as it stands.
Our landlord reckons that if Mourinho can lure the Dortmund hitman to Stamford Bridge in January, then the Blues will undoubtedly mount a late surge for the Premier League trophy!
The media outlet suggests Arsenal and Liverpool are also in the running for the 26-year-old striker, and our Chelsea fans here in the Tavern are confident Mourinho has the pulling power to lure Aubameyang to the west London outfit in January.
A handful of Arsenal fans here in the Tavern are pretty upset about this news, with them all agreeing that the versatile attacker would have been exactly what is needed at the club – and to lose out to Chelsea, would make it all the more worse!
Chelsea fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see the Gabon star at Stamford Bridge? Just how good is he? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
