Chelsea finally found their ideal striker who they think is perfect . Talks will happen tomorrow morning

Journalist Ben Jacobs has told The Done Deal Show that Chelsea believe Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the perfect option for their attack.

Thomas Tuchel is reportedly extremely keen to get a deal over the line for the striker, with the pair working together at Borussia Dortmund.

The 33-year-old has only been with Barcelona for half a season, and impressed greatly during his brief period as the club’s starting striker.

However, they have now announced the signing of Robert Lewandowski this summer, who is certain to be the starter at the Nou Camp this season.

This could see the end of his time at the Catalan club, with Jacobs claiming Chelsea see him as a perfect player for them.

Chelsea see Aubameyang as perfect

He said: “Chelsea realty want Aubameyang. There’s meaningful, direct talks tomorrow morning to agree a fee.

“Barcelona can be picky, which is why they’ve set this price tag on Aubameyang, which Chelsea think is miles too high. Chelsea’s original valuation was £11m, they are prepared to go up but probably not to the £25m Barcelona want, but their perspective is they’d prefer to pay £15m.

“The Chelsea perspective is Aubameyang is a top target, they think he’s perfect for the system. Thomas Tuchel doesn’t have any concerns about Aubameyang and the manner in which he left Arsenal because he knows the player really well.”

Supporters may have been surprised when his name was brought up as a potential striking target, considering his age and the method in which he ended up leaving Arsenal last season.

With that being said, as a short term option he has potential to be exactly what Chelsea need, as they develop Armando Broja further.

The Albanian is the only recognised striker in the squad, and with him now likely to stay a role model to learn from could be the perfect next signing.
