Antonio Conte wants to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for Chelsea this summer, but the Blues are yet to make a bid, according to Kaveh Solhekol.

The Sky Sports News reporter has taken to Twitter to claim that the west London side are interested in signing the Gabon international from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

The reporter also claims that Dortmund have told clubs that they have just eight days left to make a move to sign the 28-year-old from the Bundesliga club this summer.

Solhekol wrote on Twitter: “Borussia Dortmund warning clubs they have only 8 days left to make offer for Aubameyang. Told Conte wants him at Chelsea but no bid yet.”

Aubameyang finished as the Bundesliga’s top scorer last season and is widely regarded to be one of Europe’s top attacking talents.

Chelsea are thought to be on the lookout for a new striker this summer after their interest in Romelu Lukaku amounted to nothing.

The Blues were heavily linked with a move to bring Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge throughout the summer but a move failed to materialise before the Belgian signed for Manchester United last week.

Chelsea confirmed their third signing of the summer on Saturday with the capture of midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco.
