GETTY Chelsea remain in the hunt for Roma striker Edin Dzeko but the move is taking time

Edin Dzeko

Batshuayi has failed to impress Chelsea manager Antonio Conte who has been on the lookout for a physical no.9 to lead the Blues attack.

The club was immediately linked with replacements like Leicester City's Riyadh Mahrez or Monaco's Thomas Lemar - a player they had made moves for in the summer - but it appeared that there was only one real target.

Lawyer Alfons Becker was quoted in the German paper Frankfurter Allgemeine, saying; "He will not testify today because he is ill".

"So I don't think they're strong enough, I don't see the point in doing that".

That's left Olivier Giroud in limbo.

Who are the big winners here?

Giroud should not be for sale.

It has also been claimed Arsenal won't oppose Giroud joining Chelsea.

Aubameyang would join up with former Dortmund team-mate Henrikh Mkhitaryan at Arsenal after the Armenian joined in a swap deal which saw Alexis Sanchez head to Manchester United. Despite Burnley's tough fixtures of late, the Icelandic international has created a chance every 25 minutes over the last four gameweeks amounting to 14, more than any other player in the league.

"The statement is inappropriate and wrong", Zorc said of Buerki's comments. It took an injury-time strike from Dortmund full-back Jeremy Toljan to spare the hosts' blushes.

Meanwhile, Dortmund are ready to make an approach for Michy Batshuayi, who scored twice in Chelsea's cup win over Newcastle. If you want the best, you have to pay for the best.

Arsenal have offered Aubameyang a three-and-a-half year contract worth £180,000-a-week as they look to bolster their attacking options. Last season was his most prolific season, scoring 31 league goals and being named top goalscorer in the Bundesliga, beating Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski in the process.
