There has been an agreement reached for Chelsea to sign a player this morning as we race through transfer deadline day. Chelsea have been trying to sign a new striker for Thomas Tuchel for the last few weeks but have yet to get one over the line. That is all expected to change today with Pierre Emerick Aubameyang set to join from Barcelona.
The count down is on now to the 11pm deadline this evening, but according to Sky Germany (as below), Chelsea have reached an agreement in principle to sign Aubameyang. The player has a flight planned to London very soon ahead of a reported move worth a €12m transfer fee plus Marcos Alonso.

It will be nice to finally see this one get over the line now having been one that has been brewing up for some time now. Aubameyang will return to the Premier League, and also return to the coaching of Thomas Tuchel.
