Chelsea only have a matter of days to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, their chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has said.

Now it would appear that manager Antonio Conte has turned his attentions to bolstering his striking options after missing out on Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United and informing Diego Costa that his services won't be required for next season.

Chelsea are expected to launch a £140million attack to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alvaro Morata. We will wait a few more days but not much longer.

Chelsea confirmed their third signing of the summer on Saturday when they concluded a deal to bring midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko to Stamford Bridge from Monaco.

The two Premier League giants are in a 'tug of war' according to The Sun, and have both made contact with the Bundesliga club regarding a potential transfer. Real Madrid and Liverpool are rumoured to be keen, too.

"I personally would prefer him to stay".

"From his mentality and attitude to his great passion, Mario was always ready", he told Welt am Sonntag.

Jurgen Klopp knows the striker well after being the man to take him to Dortmund in 2013 and it looks like the Liverpool coach is hoping for a reunion at Anfield as he looks to build a side capable of competing for the title. Does he hold the ball, does he have the speed of projection he is asking for? However, Watzke admitted this may not be possible as: "There are a few clubs on this planet where he can obviously earn more".
