Chelsea linked with €5m move for Lorient striker Vincent Aboubakar [L’Equipe]
French newspaper L’Equipe hint today that Chelsea have made a move for 22-year-old Lorient striker Vincent Aboubakar.
The Cameroon striker just enjoyed his best season so far, scoring 16 goals in 35 games for Lorient.
According to L’Equipe, Aboubakar is the subject of several bids from England and is keen to join a Premier League side.
Chelsea scouted Aboubakar extensively at the end of the Ligue 1 season but the Cameroon striker will only make a decision on his future after the World Cup.
With Diego Costa all set for Chelsea and speculation rife about the futures of Demba Ba and Fernando Torres, Jose Mourinho may be preparing a back-up option for his squad in 2014/2015.
The official Ligue 1 channel has all the goals scored by Vincent Aboubakar last season on the video below.
