Antonio Conte 'desperate' to make this Chelsea signing

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has been heavily linked with a swoop for the 28-year-old Gabon worldwide striker, who has scored 85 goals in 128 Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund, including 31 goals in 32 outings last term.

The Borussia Dortmund hitman has been offered to Chelsea after the Blues missed out on Romelu Lukaku.

Antonio Conte is "desperate" to sign a centre-forward for Chelsea this summer but the Blues are not close to landing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to reports in the British media.

Aubameyang offers plenty of assurances given his form in recent years in Germany, and ultimately he would make any side better.

Hopefully I can play a few more games. "The fans were happy to see me back on the field representing West Indies". Just from the little I've experienced since coming back, there is still more discussions to be done.

Chelsea appear to be looking to exploit the situation, with the tabloid reporting that the Premier League champions are confident that Aubameyang will be a Chelsea player come the end of the summer transfer window.

He may just leave Dortmund this summer transfer window but it's not cast in stone he will sign for Chelsea yet although there has been interest from Stamford Bridge.

The Gabon global has been widely tipped to leave the Signal Iduna Park outfit this summer with the likes of Premier League duo Liverpool and Chelsea said to be interested, while a return to former club AC Milan has also been mooted.

Aubameyang has been said to be interested in a move to London, but he has not made his intention public as to where he will play next season.
