Chelsea is planning to turn up the heat for their North London rivals Arsenal.
The Blues are planning a scoop for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Chelsea has been in the market looking for a new striker. Their options so far were Dries Mertens, the free agent from Napoli, Ligue 1 star Moussa Dembele, Timo Werner from Leipzig, or Lautaro Martinez of Inter.
However, in an attempt to widen their pool it may seem that Chelsea has now turned their attention to one of the finest strikers currently in the game in Aubameyang. The Gabonese international has been on fine form since joining Arsenal.
He is one of the most lethal strikers in the Premier League today and can be a huge coup for the Blues despite his age. With Arsenal’s current wage situation and the club failing to qualify for Europe, Arsenal might have to sell a few stars to balance their books.
Auba is also being chased by Barcelona, who is also in a little financial situation making Chelsea the strongest bidder on the book. It all now depends on Lampard whether he wants to break the bank for Auba or choose a younger but untested option for the Blues!
