Chelsea have agreed a £52 million deal with Arsenal for the signing of star striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and it looks certain that he is headed to Chelsea next season with Aubameyang discussing personal terms with the Blues before he says his final goodbyes to his Arsenal fans.

The 30-year-old’s contract is supposed to expire with Arsenal in 2021 and he had rejected two proposals from Arsenal over an extension. Aubameyang last played Champions League football in 2017 and the Gunners seemed unlikely to qualify in the top four this term.
