"Antonio Conte wants him to replace Diego Costa" - Chelsea make £62million bid to sign African striker


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has identified Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the one to take over from Diego Costa according to TuttoMercatoWeb.

The Italian manager is desperate to sign a new striker during the summer transfer window.

His priority signing, Romelu Lukaku, has joined Manchester United and the Blues are still without a star striker ahead of next season.

Spain's Diego Costa will leave the club and the £62million-rated Gabonese could be the one to replace him.

Meanwhile, Dortmund coach Peter Bosz is fully aware of the speculation surrounding the 28-year-old.

"There is speculation about it and there will be until the end of August, it is clear," Bosz is quoted as saying by FourFourTwo.

"For me, what matters is that he is here and that he is fit."
