Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will join Chelsea and seal a reunion with boss Thomas Tuchel as Premier League clubs surpass £2bn in a record transfer window.
Chelsea have agreed to give Barcelona £12million plus left-back Marcos Alonso for Aubameyang, who only moved to the Camp Nou for free in February after leaving Arsenal.
Aubameyang joins Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Marc Cucurella, Carney Chukwuemeka and Wesley Fofana at Chelsea after new owner Todd Boehly spent £280million this summer.

The deal is part of a top flight record window, with Nottingham Forest signing a whopping 19 players.
Aubameyang will have to wait several weeks for his Chelsea debut after he suffered a broken jaw in an armed robbery at his home in the early morning hours on Monday.
Chelsea also signed a season deal for Juventus’ Denis Zakaria after they were frustrated in their efforts to bring in two central midfielders, Ajax’s Edson Alvarez and PSV Eindhoven’s Ibrahim Sangare.
The London club also allowed 21-year-old Scottish midfielder Billy Gilmour to join Brighton for £9 million.
