Aubameyang signs for Chelsea

Just seven months after leaving Arsenal, striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is back in London and the Premier League.

This time he has signed for Chelsea, reuniting him with Thomas Tuchel, who he  played under when they were both at Borussia Dortmund together.

He left the Gunners to sign for Barcelona and the 33=-year old scored 13 times in 24 games for them. The Catalans did not want to lose him, but financial constraints have forced them to trim their wage bill.

The reported fee is £12 million plus left-back Marcos Alonso, whose six year stay at Stamford Bridge has now come to an end.

The Gabonese striker has agreed a two year deal, the club having the option for a further 12 months.

Tuchel will be hoping that Aubameyang can provide an injection of pace to an attack that has looked pedestrian so far this season.
