Chelsea have been offered striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang by Borussia Dortmund intermediaries.

The Mirror says Chelsea have been told they can sign Aubameyang in January.

The Gabon international has had a season shrouded in controversy and was most recently sent off as the German giants let a 4-0 lead slip against Schalke.

That that has led to a breakdown in the relationship with the club running out of patience with the player.

Chelsea are said to be among a number of clubs who have been informed that he will be on the market in the winter window.

And despite his problems with Dortmund, the Blues could be tempted with a bid if BVB are willing to negotiate.
