Chelsea have been linked to numerous big-name strikers over the past few weeks amid reports that Diego Costa is on his way out of the Stamford Bridge exit gates.

Romelu Lukaku was tipped to return to his former club, but the Everton forward opted to join rivals Manchester United.

Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the latest figure to be named in the gossip columns in relation to Chelsea’s hunt for a new forward.

Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata and Torino striker Andrea Belotti have also been mentioned, but according to Spanish journalist Manu Sainz, Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero could be joining the Premier League champions.

He tweeted on Sunday that City manager Pep Guardiola has already given the go-ahead for the Argentine to move.

The tweet read: “They tell me that Chelsea want to Kun Aguero. Guardiola would have already given the ok to operation…”

As expected, Blues fans have taken to social media to give their reaction to the story.

The majority of them would be very happy to welcome their rival to the club as they attempt to successfully defend the league title.
