Chelsea reportedly identify key target as Blues consider summer move

For the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, the signing of a new forward is the number one priority for Antonio Conte…

Luckily for the Italian, there are a host of options across Europe that he could look to consider, and according to Sky Sports, Chelsea have identified the player that they want.

Sky Sports report that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a genuine transfer target for the Blues this summer, with current side Borussia Dortmund said to be demanding around £70 million for his signature.

Diego Costa has been a vital cog in the Chelsea machine over the last few years, but if anyone is capable of taking over the mantle it is Aubameyang. The Gabon attacker has been in lethal form for Borussia Dortmund, finishing last season with a seismic 31 league goals in the Bundesliga.

A pacy attacker, he would look to feed off of the attacking prowess provided by the likes of Victor Moses, Eden Hazard and Pedro – leaving Chelsea looking absolutely deadly going forward.

That being said, Chelsea have been interested in strikers before over the course of the summer, and that interest has – as of yet- ended in disappointment. Our landlord, though, is hoping that this one might have a better ending.
