Chelsea are keen on signing a striker before the close of the summer transfer window.
Chelsea have been linked with a move for Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel knows Aubameyang well from his time as Borussia Dortmund manager, and Aubameyang was a top player under his watch.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, both clubs are apart in their valuation for Aubameyang, with Barcelona wanting over €30m for the 33-year-old.
“Barcelona have asked around €30m fee for Pierre [Emerick] Aubameyang during the weekend, Chelsea wanted to spend way less than this,” Fabrizio Romano tweeted.
“Talks continue, as Marcos Alonso is still part of the conversations.
“Tuchel, pushing for Aubameyang as priority… but Xavi insists to keep him.”
