The Belgian international signed for rivals Manchester United in a £75m deal from Everton earlier this week.

Real Madrid and Torino forwards Alvaro Morata and Andrea Belotti have been touted with Chelsea but it appears as though Aubameyang will be Conte’s man.

The report claims that Dortmund will now target Arsenal striker Oliver Giroud as his replacement.

It is also said that Diego Costa will be allowed to join Atletico Madrid, although he will be loaned out until January due to their current transfer ban.
