Michy Batshuayi replaces Aubameyang at Dortmund after Giroud joins Chelsea

And the triangle is complete.

CHELSEA FORWARD MICHY Batshuayi has joined Borussia Dortmund on loan for the rest of the season

The 24-year-old has moved to the Bundesliga for the remainder of the current campaign as BVB look to replace the outgoing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who was unveiled by Arsenal earlier today.

Although Belgian international Batshuayi has scored 10 goals in all competitions for Chelsea this season, he struggled to displace first-choice striker Alvaro Morata for Premier League matches — starting only three games.

And with Dortmund struggling for form following the club-record sale of Ousmane Dembele to Barcelona, the Bundesliga side have moved to bring in a quality goalscorer.
