Chelsea close in on £65M Bundesliga striker as Costa replacement

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang win the DFB Pokal with Borussia Dortmund

Chelsea are expected to launch a £140million attack to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alvaro Morata.

CSL clubs found it hard to complete major deals during the transfer window, although Tianjin, who have regularly been linked with a move for Chelsea's Diego Costa, lessened the blow of missing out on Aubameyang by snapping up Cologne striker Anthony Modeste on loan.

This may give Chelsea the favorites tag in the race to sign the player, whom they may be especially keen on, considering that they lost out to Manchester United in the race to sign Romelu Lukaku.

TalkSPORT reported late last week that Chelsea and Liverpool were going head-to-head to sign Aubameyang with both clubs understood to be keen to lure the Gabon worldwide to England.

The Spain global has not travelled with the rest of Conte's squad for their trip to the Far East, and the Daily Mirror now claims Aubameyang is set to be his replacement at Stamford Bridge.

The Sun says the Reds have leapt ahead of Chelsea to sign the Gabon worldwide because of Liverpool manager's ties with his former club. The Mirror believe that the Gabonese worldwide is determined to leave Dortmund this summer, with the Bundesliga heavyweights said to be resigned to losing him.
