Reports from France indicate Gabonese striker Aubameyang is set to complete a switch to Stamford Bridge with the two clubs in advanced talks over a deal.

The 25-year-old only moved to Germany 12 months ago, and netted 13 goals in 21 Bundesliga starts for Jurgen Klopp's side during his debut campaign.

£7m has been reported as the price needed to secure the frontman's services.

The Blues have also been backed to launch a massive £60m raid to try and sign Manchester United target Paul Pogba from Juventus.

The bid would amount to their largest ever transfer, eclipsing Fernando Torres' £50m move from Liverpool in 2011.

Chelsea have already signed Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona for £30m this summer and are set to land Atletico's Diego Costa for a similar fee.
