Chelsea willing to sign Aubameyang and De Jong if Barcelona accept

Chelsea are willing to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Frenkie De Jong, should Barcelona agree to sell the pair.

Aubameyang left Arsenal for Barca in January this year, while De Jong is currently in a dispute with the club over deferred wages.

Manchester United have been trying to sign De Jong all summer, but unlike the Red Devils, Chelsea can offer Champions League football.

The Blues are willing to match United's offer of £72m for De Jong, per Sky Sports.

Thomas Tuchel and Aubameyang worked together at Borussia Dortmund, and the Chelsea manager is willing to re-kindle their successful partnership at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are also increasingly confident they can secure a deal for Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana before the transfer window shuts.
