Man City, Chelsea to battle for Aubameyang

Man City, Chelsea to battle for Aubameyang

Aubameyang could make Premier League move next summer

Manchester City and Chelsea will look fight it out for the services of Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabon international is prepared to leave the Bundesliga outfit at the end of the season.

Aubameyang has been long linked with a Premier League move with reports suggesting that Arsenal failed with a club-record £52m bid for the marksman in January.

Spanish outlet Don Balon states that the Citizens and the Blues will do their best to convince the 27-year-old to join the English top flight.

The former Saint-Etienne man has his mind set on a switch to Real Madrid, but with the European champions on a transfer ban, he would have to wait until January 2018 to realise his dream.

And this provides the Premier League duo with a chance of sneaking a deal in with the player next summer.

Aubameyang has amassed over 80 goals for Borussia Dortmund since arriving from Saint-Etienne three years ago.
