Chelsea in shock swoop for Aubameyang, open transfer talks with striker

Chelsea have reportedly opened talks with Barcelona as they are interested in signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before the transfer window closes.

The west London club have already acquired the services of Raheem Sterling but Thomas Tuchel is eager to add another forward to his ranks following the departure of Romelu Lukaku.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea have already begun talks with Aubameyang, and he has emerged as a real option among their list of targets to fill the striker position this summer.

RB Salzburgā€™s Benjamin Sesko is also among the key names for Chelsea after the club had a meeting for him, however the Slovenian still has four years left on his contract in Austria, which would make a move tricky.

Aubameyang would be a short-term but cheap acquisition for the Blues, and could also pave way for smoother negotiations between the Premier League side and Barcelona, who are looking to acquire Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso
