Chelsea could reach an agreement for the Barcelona striker this week.
Chelsea are still very much keen on wrapping up some deals before the end of this summer’s transfer window.
The Blues have missed out on some key targets but at the same time, managed to bring in some reinforcements in all areas of the pitch.
Chelsea have so far concluded deals for attacker Raheem Sterling, center back Kalidou Koulibaly, midfield prodigy Carney Chukwuemeka, wonderkid goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina and wingback Marc Cucurella.
Thomas Tuchel has also insisted his side may need to get more deals done if they are to compete for the Premier League title this season, having let go of two attackers already this summer.
Chelsea are currently seeking replacements, just in time before the window shuts at the end of the month.
Chelsea hope to reach Aubemayang agreement with Barcelona this week
As part of Chelsea’s recruitment plans this summer, Thomas Tuchel’s side has identified a number of attackers with Everton’s Anthony Gordon being linked with a switch as well as Barcelona striker Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang.
Reports today claim that Chelsea have scheduled a meeting this afternoon with Barcelona and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang’s representatives to convince him to move to Stamford Bridge as per Evening Standard.
The former Arsenal captain is reluctant to make a summer switch, having arrived at Camp Now just seven months ago at the end of the January transfer window.
Manchester United are also rumoured to be interested in his services, but the 33-year-old striker is said to have his mind focused on Champions League football.
Reports also claim that a fee of around £24 million could be enough to secure the 33-year-old, with Barcelona needing to sell players due to their financial problems.
Co-incidentally Chelsea have already lost a couple of their transfer targets this summer to the Catalans having registered interest in Robert Lewandowski, Jules Kounde, and Raphinha.
