Borussia Dortmund are finally ready to sell one of their star men in January, while Manchester United could find themselves poached for one of their top young talents, according to Tuesday’s papers.
DORTMUND READY TO SELL AUBAMEYANG IN JANUARY
Chelsea have been offered the chance to sign Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January, according to reports.
The striker was on Monday linked with a move to Liverpool, but the Daily Mirror believes it is Chelsea who have been approached by the Bundesliga club with the chance to buy the player.
Aubameyang is one of Europe’s most prolific strikers, but his relationship with teammates and management at Dortmund has soured in recent months, despite the player scoring 17 times in 19 appearances this season.
And the Mirror believes Dortmund have contacted Chelsea to inform them they are willing to sell the striker for a fee of which is likely to reach £50million.
Antonio Conte has been on the hunt for a new striker ahead of January and is targeting another top-quality frontman, with Alvaro Morata currently the only fit striker at Chelsea with Michy Batshuayi currently injured.
And with Aubameyang’s troubles at Dortmund at breaking point – the player was sent off against Schalke at the weekend as Peter Bosz’s side squandered a four-goal lead – it seems a move to the Premier League is finally set to materialise.
