Chelsea 'make £17m FINAL Aubemeyang transfer offer' with Barcelona under pressure to accept in order to register Kounde | The Sun
CHELSEA have made one final offer for Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to reports.
The Blues are looking to bolster their striker department with 20-year-old Armando Broja the only out-and-out first-team forward.
Romelu Lukaku left Chelsea for a loan move to Inter Milan after an unsuccessful return to Stamford Bridge last season.
Chelsea also sanctioned the sale of Germany ace Timo Werner back to RB Leipzig.
And so Ex-Arsenal ace Aubameyang is of interest to Blues boss Thomas Tuchel, having worked with the 33-year-old at Borussia Dortmund.
A number of offers have already been submitted to Barca for the player, however they didn't meet the demands of the Catalan club.

One situation could help strengthen Chelsea's negotiating hand: Barca need to sell to register big money summer signing Jules Kounde.
Barca need £15m to register the France defender, and the sale of Aubameyang to Chelsea with the offer on the table would allow that.
