Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern were breathing a sigh of relief yesterday as they secured a much needed victory over Norwich City and are now optimistic of positive business in January’s transfer window.
The Sun On Sunday state that the latest player to join Jose Mourinho’s wish-list is Borussia Dortmund’s electric striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who crucially is available to play Champions League football.
Dortmund are playing in the Europa League this season, which means Aubameyang can feature in Europe’s elite competition should he leave, but the £20m deal being prepared by Chelsea is unlikely to persuade the Bundesliga giants into a sale.
Aubameyang, who will leave in January for the African Cup Of Nations, is enjoying a tremendous calendar year and his record in the Bundesliga season this term stands at 14 goals in the opening 13 matches of the campaign.
Now rated as one of Europe’s most lethal strikers, Mourinho is desperate to bring Aubameyang in as one of two striking additions in the New Year.
Chelsea fans in the bar are desperate for this to be true but believe their side needs to raise their bid, as it won’t be enough to secure a deal.
Blues fans, can Aubameyang save your season? Should you sell Diego Costa to make way for this man? Let us know in the comments below!
