Chelsea are now leading in the race for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's signature.
For a few weeks, Antonio Conte is fighting intensely for an attacker, and it is expected that he will finally achieve this goal. The club will most likely leave Diego Costa, so Chelsea were forced to seek his successor. Among the potential candidates were Romelu Lukaku, Álvaro Morata and Andrea Belotti, but the English champions will bet on Aubameyang.
"The Mirror" report that the club from Stamford Bridge have won the competition for the Gabonese, who was also seriously interested in Milan. Due to the problems faced by the aforementioned players, Chelsea have focused on signing the Bundesliga top-scorer. The value of the transfer will be about 65 million pounds.
The Dortmunders are now looking for Aubameyang's successor. The Germans have already started talks on transfer of Olivier Giroud from Arsenal. Meanwhile, Diego Costa will most likely go to Atlético Madrid, while the first part of the season he will spend in another club on loan (possible direction is China).
Aubameyang went to Borussia in 2013 from Saint-Étienne. He rapidly became a star of the team and he played almost 50 games in each season. In total, he has played in 189 matches with 120 goals for BVB.
