Chelsea legend Alan Hudson has urged the Blues to sign Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in order to wrestle the Premier League title from Liverpool this season.
Alan Hudson told CaughtOffside that he would back Chelsea to win the Premier League title this season ahead of champions Liverpool and Manchester City.
According to him, the combination of Timo Werner and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the Chelsea forward line would be too deadly for the rest of the league to handle.
Chelsea have signed seven new players since the start of this transfer window in July but Alan Hudson is still not convinced about their status as a Premier League title challenger.

Alan Hudson also turned out for Arsenal during his glittering football career and he has praised Aubameyang for his quality.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been the major source of goals for the Gunners since joining in January 2018 in a £56m deal which was a club record.
He has scored four goals in his last three games for Arsenal including a brace in the FA Cup final. The Gunners beat Chelsea 2-1 in that game to lift the trophy for the 14th time.
Aubameyang has one year on his contract though several reports claimed that the Gabonese international has agreed a new three-year deal.
