Chelsea eye ‘shock move’ for Man Utd star as fresh Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ‘offer’ made

All the latest Chelsea news and transfer rumours as the Blues look to build on their solid start to the campaign.

Chelsea have enjoyed a solid start to the season so far.

The Blues have picked up four points from their first two games, and while they will have been disappointed to drop two points againstTottenham last weekend, their performance provided cause for optimism.

Chelsea have had a turbulent few months due to the ownership situation and the loss of key players over the summer.

But they are already looking strong as they continue to add to their squad ahead of the transfer deadline.

Here we take a look at all the latest Chelsea transfer news and rumours.

Aubameyang offer

Chelsea are now said to have submitted a bid for Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Aubameyang is a target of the Blues, who need a striker after losing Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea have upped their bid to £15million after holding talks with the frontman in West London.

Maguire interest

Chelsea have been linked with a shock move for Manchester United defender Harry Maguire.

The Blues have already strengthened their back line with the signing of Kalidou Koulibaly, but they need more having lost two key defenders early in the summer.

The Mail claim Maguire is of interest to Chelsea, and they could send Christian Pulisic the other way to sweeten the deal.

Maguire has been up and down at Old Trafford since making a big-money move three years ago.

Tuchel contract

This one is a little less transfer news and more contract news.

But Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is said to bein talks over a new contract.

Tuchel has said: “My people talk to the owners and take care of everything else. You know how glad I am to be here and how much I like it.

“There are talks but I think given the situation where we come from, and where we are in the middle of the transfer period, I think it is the very best if I focus on my team and on sports and on being competitive,
