According to ESPN via The Sun, Chelsea are hopeful of completing a deal for Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Arsenal are expected to sell the Gabonese international this summer to avoid losing him as a free agent in the summer of 2021.

With the Gunners failing to qualify for the Champions League in recent seasons, Aubameyang isn’t interested in extending his stay at Arsenal.

The Blues are continuing to monitor the Gabonese striker and would be tempted into making a move should the Gunners decide to sell this summer.

Aubameyang was the joint-top goalscorer in the Premier League last season with 22 goals and he has scored 17 goals already this season.
