Chelsea are set to help Arsenal land their top target in Aubameyang this week, by allowing Michy Batshuayi to join the BVB until the end of the season.
The Gunners were this week claimed to be very close to confirming the arrival of Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after a long drawn out pursuit this month, and they were believed to be on the look-out for his replacement prior to confirming his departure.
Chelsea are now believed to have sanctioned a loan deal which will see Michy join the Bundesliga side until the end of the term, which should see Dortmund trigger the move for our target.
The Blues are also linked with a move to sign Olivier Giroud from our side, with the Frenchman keen on staying in England, with the club having been strongly linked with the capture of a target man all January, with the likes of Peter Crouch, Andy Carroll and Edin Dzeko having been speculated.
We could now potentially see a three-way transfer happen with Michy, Olivier and PEA all moving on this month.
We are expected to break our club record transfer fee in order to sign the Gabon international, while we are said to be in want of £35 Million in order to part ways with Olivier Giroud.
We would most certainly be getting the best deal out of the three, with our target consistently firing for his current side, even bagging 21 goals in his 24 appearances so far this term despite being unhappy with the BVB hierarchy.
Bild even claim that our deal to sign PEA will go through today.
Are Chelsea about to help us get the deal over the line? Is Giroud suited to Chelsea’s needs?
