Chelsea are one of two clubs being linked with Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to reports in England.

The Sun is reporting that Aubameyang is looking to secure a move away from the German side in the summer transfer window but a deal has failed to materialise despite his undoubted quality.

The Gabon international has underlined his desire to secure a summer move to allow the experienced centre-forward to further develop at a new club.

According to the same article, AC Milan and Chelsea are both being touted as potential suitors for the African forward but the defending Premier League champions have cemented their interest with an offer.

Chelsea signed Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata in a £58m deal in the 2017 summer transfer window as Conte looked to improve his attacking options at the west London club.

The Blues are hoping to offload controversial Spain international Diego Costa before transfer deadline after the title holders informed the centre-forward that he is surplus to requirements.

Chelsea were 2-1 winners against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday thanks to Marcos Alonso’s double either side of half-time at Wembley.

The Blues suffered a surprise 3-2 defeat by Burnley in their opening Premier League fixture of the 2017-18 season.
