Chelsea keen on Dembele-Aubameyang double swoop .
With Antonio Conte expected to be given the green light on a huge summer spending spree at Stamford Bridge, two more names have been thrown into the hat about over a possible move to London, Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ousmane Dembele, according to report Eurosport (h/t Football London). Gabon international Aubameyang was last season’s top scorer with 31 goals in the Bundesliga, with Dortmund willing to listen to offers around £63m, and is a wanted man across Europe. Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City have all been strongly linked with the forward who seems to be very interested in a move away from Germany this summer, with Guardiola desperate to bring him to Manchester. Dembele is one of Europe’s most talented youngsters and is rumoured to be unhappy with the sacking of former boss Thomas Tuchel. Manchester United and Barcelona are both also said to be interested in signing the France international. Eurosport claim that Chelsea are in with a real possibility of signing the 20-year-old winger, which may cost them around £70m to persuade Dortmund to part with Dembele. The former Rennes standout scored 10 goals and provided 21 assists in 49 appearances during his debut season in German football. Chelsea want to bring both players to Stamford Bridge this summer and a move for the pair could cost them in the region of £133m if reported asking prices are accurate.
