Pierre Emerick Aubameyang: Chelsea Are Considering Shock Move for Barcelona Star

  • Former Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has emerged as a potential target for Chelsea who could do with a new striker
  • Chelsea is yet to submit an official offer but there is general consensus that Barcelona would allow him to leave after getting Robert Lewandowski
  • Barcelona also need to release a few players to be able to register their new acquisitions ahead of the new season

Chelsea have set their eyes on signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona. If the deal goes through, it will come as a surprise given that Aubameyang only joined Barcelona six months ago.

The striker had fallen out with Arsenal's head coach Mikel Arteta and managed to force a move away to Camp Nou where he became an instant hit.

But with the signing of Robert Lewandowski, Aubameyang's playing chances might be significantly reduced. It is widely expected that the former Bayern Munich striker will lead the line, given what he has achieved in his career.

Daily Mail reports that Barcelona ready to sell the Gabonese international, given that they are yet to register their new players. Chelsea, meanwhile, are looking for a new striker after the failed stint of Romelu Lukaku.

Head coach Thomas Tuchel could be reunited with a player he worked with during his Borussia Dortmund days. Tuchel has already roped in Raheem Sterling and could use Aubameyang as a striker in his new attack.

Barca Universal reports that Aubameyang will be a perfect and short-term solution for Chelsea given that he already has experience in the Premier League.
