Finally some good news for Antonio Conte and Chelsea fans!
After the fiasco of the Romelu Lukaku transfer, Chelsea fans must be feeling low. There were also some reports of Bakayoko having his head turned towards Manchester United.
But it looks like Chelsea and Conte have finally got their man, as the Monaco midfielder is reportedly set to have his medical over the weekend.
And it gets much better for the Stamford Bridge faithful, as it looks like Conte has looked to Germany to fill his striker void.
Gabon international Pierre Emerick Aubameyang was seemingly on his way to China in a blockbuster deal before Chelsea and Conte came calling.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Chelsea.
The back pages suggest it could happen:

Aubameyang has made it clear that he wishes to leave Dortmund as he feels as if he has done what he set out to do at the club.
Aubameyang had to effectively replace the great Robert Lewandowski, so he must feel proud of what he has been able to accomplish with Dortmund. He was also the top goal scorer in the Bundesliga last season, outscoring Lewandowski himself.
So yes, Chelsea are close to getting a master marksman who would definitely be an upgrade over Lukaku. The Belgian is a star in the making but still has a long way to go, while Aubameyang is a proven goal scorer.
Be happy Chelsea fans!
