LONDON (AP):

Chelsea signed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona before the summer transfer window closed last night, giving manager Thomas Tuchel a new striker a season after they couldn’t make it work with Romelu Lukaku.

The 33-year-old Aubameyang returns to the English Premier League (EPL) after just seven months in Barcelona, where he moved after being released by Arsenal. The deal was reportedly valued at US$14 million.

“I have some unfinished business with the Premier League, so it’s good to be back and really exciting,” said Aubameyang, who has signed a two-year contract in a transfer announced by Chelsea nearly 90 minutes after the deadline passed.

The west London-based Chelsea are the biggest spenders in Europe this window after an outlay of about US$280 million.
