Good news to Chelsea family after an embarrassing lost to Leeds United on Sunday, the Blues were reportedly ready to sign a world-class striker.
According to the reports Barcelona and Chelsea have come to an agreement for the transfer of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to reports. With negotiations now at a ‘very advanced’ stage, the teams are thought to be optimistic that it can all be sewn up over the next few hours.
Aubameyang only joined Barcelona back in February after a spat with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta saw him shipped out of north London. His scoring rate was impressive during the second half of last season, bagging 11 goals in 17 La Liga matches.
But the arrival of Robert Lewandowski and the financial difficulties that have come with a raft of new signings leave Barca in need of cash and space on the wage bill. Aubameyang could therefore be on his way back to the Premier League with Chelsea in need of an experienced, orthodox striker.
According to Relevo, the Blues and Barca have now reached an agreement for the striker in a deal worth £18.5million and a total package worth almost £23m, including add-ons.
