Pierre Emerick Aubameyang will be joining Chelsea in a €14m deal that will see Marcos Alonso go the opposite direction.
The Gabonese is expected to fly into London around 5 pm to put pen to paper on a two-year deal with an option to extend for one more year.
Alonso who has been chased all summer by Barcelona was included in the deal and he is also expected to undergo his medical and sign a three-year deal at Barcelona.
Aubameyang suffered a minor fracture of his jaw in an attack on his home over the weekend. The Gabon International will be out of action for three weeks but Chelsea has overlooked that and proceeded with his signing.
Recall that Chelsea has said they will not part with more than £15 million for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang whose future at Barcelona is still uncertain.
Although Xavi has insisted that the Gabonese striker is still part of his plan, the club have brought in other strikers who will ultimately reduce the number of times Auba will be seen on the field of play.
