EPL: Good signing – Hasselbaink names Chelsea star to score over 20 goals this season
Chelsea legend, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, has set a goal target for the club’s new striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, this season.
Hasselbaink expects the Gabonese to thrive at Chelsea and end the season with more than 20 goals in his basket.
With that, Aubameyang will become the first Chelsea striker since Diego Costa to score that number of goals in the Premier League.
Costa scored 20 goals in 35 games in the club’s title-winning season in 2016-17.
And Aubameyang, a former Arsenal star, will hope to break the hoodoo following his deadline-day move from Barcelona.
Hasselbaink said: “Aubameyang did really well at Barcelona. He was scoring goals. It’s a good signing for Chelsea for the next two years.
“I think he will score goals; he knows where the back of the net is.
“Aubameyang can score 20 plus goals. Have they got a squad to go and become champions? Not yet.”
