Chelsea have agreed a deal in principle worth 12 million Pounds, plus defender Marcus Alonso, for Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Aubameyang scored 13 goals in 24 appearances for Barca after joining the Spanish club from Arsenal last January.

He had a buyout clause of 83.4 Million pounds in his contract, but has only played eight minutes this season.

The 33-year-old forward would be Chelsea’s seventh summer signing.

The Blues have brought in French defender Wesley Fofana for a fee in the region of 70 Million Pounds, England forward Raheem Sterling from Manchester City for 50 Million Pounds, Senegal defender Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli for 34 Million Pounds, English midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka from Aston Villa for 20 Million Pounds, Spain left-back Marc Cucurella from Brighton for 60 Million Pounds and Italian midfielder Cesare Casadei from Inter Milan.

A deal for Aubameyang would mean Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly will have spent almost 250 Million Pounds in his first transfer window since buying the club from Roman Abramovich.
