Could Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang be the next African star to light up Stamford Bridge?

The 28-year-old forward has this week been linked with a move to English Premier League club Chelsea, with the Daily Mirror reporting that the Gabon international has been offered to the Blues.

Aubameyang's relationship with Borussia Dortmund seems to be breaking down and latest reports suggest he could well be on his way out of the club come the January transfer window.

The French-born speedster saw red in a 4-4 draw against fierce rivals Schalke last time out. This comes after the German Bundesliga side axed Aubameyang from the squad for ill-discipline a few weeks earlier.

Blues boss Antonio Conte is eager to bolster his attacking options and Aubameyang, who has scored 17 goals in 19 games this season, could prove a good fit.

Aubameyang is considered as one of the premier strikers in world football and has in the past expressed his desire to play for Real Madrid.

He has scored an astonishing 137 goals in 208 games for the Black & Yellows since moving to the Signal Iduna Park four years ago.
