OFFICIAL: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang completes move to Chelsea

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has penned a two-year contract with the Blues.

The former Arsenal captain has joined Stamford Bridge on a two-year deal on the final hour of the deadline day.

Chelsea have paid £12m for his services to Barcelona and Auba is expected to lead the line very soon.

He joined Barcelona on a free transfer from Arsenal last January and scored 13 goals in 24 appearances for the Catalan giants.

With Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku leaving this summer, the 33-year-old striker will be key in Chelsea’s final third this season.
