#TransferDeadlineDay: Aubameyang To Chelsea, Bellerin To Bar

Aubameyang and Bellerin

Chelsea have reached an agreement to sign Gabonese forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona just months after movin away from London while Hector Bellerin will be moving in opposite direction.

Barca are trying to complete three deals within the last day of the summer transfer window -- Auba to Chelsea, Marcus Alonso and Bellerin to join Xavi Alonso's side.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea can now have a natural pointman in Aubameyang in a £14M deal including contract rebel Alonso who is one of the left-backs Xavi wanted.

Bellerin who has also seen his place in Arsenal lost despite impressive loan spell at Real Betis will also be able to return to Spain and play for compatriot Xavi.

It is a win-win situation for all parties.

Auba will be returning to London barely 7 months after leaving Arsenal on a mutual contract termination after fall out with manager Mikel Arteta.

The Senegalese has seen his first place taken over by goal machine Robert Lewandowski who has already scored 4 goals this term.

With Memphis Depay's deal to Juventus falling through, he will have to face competition even to compete for a second fiddle spot at Barca -- with Ferran Torres, Ansu Fati, Raphinha and Ousmane Dembele contesting for the wing position.

Barca have also agreed to terminate Martin Braithwaite's contract with the Danish forward agreeing a deal with city-rivals Espanyol.

Sergino Dest has moved on to AC Milan and Jordi Alba wants to stay put at Barca despite his drop to third fiddle of Alonso completes a transfer while teenager Alejandro Balde being first choice.
