CHELSEA are homing in on a £65million deal for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

After missing out on No 1 target Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, Blues boss Antonio Conte is desperate to add more firepower to his squad as the champions start the defence of the title next month.

Daily Mirror report Chelsea have turn their attention to the Gabon star after hitting a brick wall trying sign Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

Aubameyang, 28, has been prolific in the Bundesliga bagging 40 goals last term and has been ready to leave Dortmund all summer.

Chelsea’s move for the Gabon international could set off a striker merry-go-round with Dortmund in talks with the Gunners for Olivier Giroud.
