Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has been offered to Chelsea as Borussia Dortmund look to offload the striker in January, according to reports.
The striker has fallen out with the Dortmund manager, Peter Bosz, and was recently suspended from playing after traveling to Barcelona without permission. Aubameyang has been consistently linked with a transfer to the Premier League in recent seasons with Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal all mooted as suitors.
The Gabon international’s relationship with his club and team mates has severely deteriorated despite the fact Aubameyang has scored 17 goals in 19 appearances. Aubameyang has been one of the Europe’s most consistent goalscorers for the past three seasons and will fetch a hefty fee.
Dortmund could ask for anything upwards of £50million for their star striker and they have now made it known to interested clubs he is on the market, according to the Mirror.
And the Germans are ready to cash in as soon as January with Pierre Emerick Aubameyang seen as a disruptive force in the Dortmund team.
Antonio Conte pleaded with the Chelsea board to sanction a spending spree in January and is targeting another top frontman. Alvaro Morata is the only fit striker at Chelsea with Michy Batshuayi currently injured.
It means the Spaniard is taking on all the responsibility at Chelsea, playing in the Premier League and the Champions League. Aubameyang’s troubles at Dortmund were intensified over the weekend when he was sent off against Schalke. Dortmund squandered a four goal lead in that game as their Bundesliga season continues to stall.
