Saint-Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is interesting Chelsea.

Chelsea are set to pip former boss Andre Villas-Boas to the signing of Saint-Etienne starlet Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Villas-Boas is thought to have identified the 23-year-old striker as a key summer target, as he looks to add more fire-power to his Tottenham squad.

But Chelsea have stolen a march on their London rivals by making the first move for Ligue 1's second-top scorer, reports Le 10 Sport.
