Cape Town - Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi is undergoing a medical at German outfit Borussia Dortmund ahead of a loan switch to the Bundesliga for the remainder of the end of the season.

The move comes after Arsenal announced the signing of Dortmund attacker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on a long-term deal setting off a domino effect that would likely see Olivier Giroud heading to the blue half of London.

Aubameyang signed for a record fee for the Gunners, a reported £56 million from Dortmund, both clubs confirmed on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old Gabon striker, who has scored 141 goals for Dortmund since joining in 2013, signed a long-term contract with the storied London club.

His transfer fee outstrips the £46.5 million that Arsenal paid for French striker Alexandre Lacazette last August.

"Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has joined us from Borussia Dortmund on a long-term contract for a club-record fee," the statement from Arsenal said.

The club described him as "one of the world's most highly-rated strikers".
