Chelsea are understood to be interested in making Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang their own.
The Premier League champions are on the trail of the Gabon international because they missed out on former striker Romelu Lukaku.
According to Sky Sports, the Blues are intent on getting a world-class striker this summer, with Diego Costa also set to leave Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Conte is believed to like the former African footballer of the year and the 28-year-old is on his shortlist with Alvaro Morata of Real Madrid, Torino’s Andrea Belotti and another current Premier League striker.
Reports say Dortmund will let Aubameyang go this summer for about £70m and the striker has told the club he wants to leave.
Other interested clubs
AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly holding talks to sign him.
Meanwhile, Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke says they have not received any offers yet and warned interested clubs that they are running out of time.
