Chelsea experienced a very busy Deadline Day.

Given his previous connection to Arsenal, Aubameyang’s move back to London from La Liga was the day’s most high-profile deal.

Now, following the Gabonese striker’s return to the country’s capital, Chelsea have confirmed that the 33-year-old will take on the number nine shirt – a clear sign of the important role the former Gunners’ captain is going to be expected to play at Stamford Bridge.
