Chelsea made a £15million offer to sign Aubameyang earlier this month, but without an agreement on a fee with the club or personal terms with the player, they could walk away from a deal. His age – 33 – and high wages would be a concern.

The ‘significant gap in appreciation’ between Everton and Chelsea for the youngster Gordon is believed to be why the move is becoming increasingly unlikely as time is left before the deadline passes.

Elsewhere, midfielders Conor Gallagher and Christian Pulisic are expected to remain at Stamford Bridge.

Striker Armando Broja, who has also been linked with a departure amid Newcastle and Everton interest, is said to be highly regarded by club chiefs and is likely to remain in West London.

Central midfielder Billy Gilmour is reportedly wanted by Brighton, but Chelsea would rather loan him out to a top club for a season than sell him this summer.
