Following the departure of Romelu Lukaku on loan back to Italy, Chelsea have identified Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang as a short-term answer to their goal-scoring issue.

Marsden claims that Wednesday should be ‘key’ for this widely rumored move. There was a meeting between the two clubs on Tuesday but it was not as conducive to closing the deal as they had hoped.
Despite the end of the window drawing near, all parties reportedly still expect this deal to be sorted out before it slams shut. Personal terms are not thought to be an issue and Aubameyang seemingly has no issues himself joining a rival of Arsenal, a club he captained.
