Pierre Emerick Aubameyang

Chelsea are close to completing a swap deal for Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

According to reports from Europe, an offer of Marcos Alonso plus £8m cash in exchange for the Gabon striker has been accepted by Barca.

Alonso touched down in Barcelona yesterday in anticipation of making a move to the Nou Camp.

Former Arsenal captain Aubameyang, meanwhile, is eager to ferry his family back to London after this week’s violent home robbery.

Aubameyang left the Gunners only in January, but has been encouraged to leave by Barca after the arrival of Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich.
