Here is a look at the latest news coming out of the club today...

New striker deal getting closer

Chelsea are reportedly edging towards the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona.

The former Arsenal forward could be poised for a sensational return to England.

The Sun report that he is moving ‘closer’ to the addition of the Gabon international to bolster their options up top.

Target wants to leave

Tuchel’s side have received a boost in their pursuit of Everton winger Anthony Gordon.

The England youth international broke into the Toffees’ first-team last term and caught the eye.

According to the Independent, he has told the Merseyside outfit that he wants to ‘leave’ before the end of the transfer window.

Gallagher latest

Conor Gallagher may well still end up back at Crystal Palace as uncertainty continues about where he will end up playing his football for the rest of this campaign.

The attacking midfielder was a hit on loan at Selhurst Park in the last campaign and enjoyed plenty of first-team action with Patrick Viera’s side.

The Daily Mail report that the Eagles will be at the ‘front of the queue’ to sign him if he becomes available before the end of the month, with Newcastle United and West Ham United mentioned as two other potential suitors.
