Wow! Chelsea have made move to sign £350,000-a-week star from European giants
There have been some tunning reports which have claimed Chelsea have made moves to try and sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona
Chelsea made the big decision earlier in the transfer window to allow Romelu Lukaku head back to Italian football and Inter Milan after failing to make the impact that many had hoped for last season
That means that Thomas Tuchel knows that he needs to add another striker to the side – and after missing out on Darwin Nunez – Robert Lewandowski – Erling Haaland and even Harry Kane – Chelsea are now interested in a deal for Aubameyang
The 33-year-old scored 92 goals in 163 appearances during four years with the Gunners but left the Emirates under a cloud, having been stripped of the captaincy by Mikel Arteta.
However – since his move to Barcelona during the January window – he has looked like a totally different player and netted 13 goals for the Spaniards to show that he is still able to score goals on a regular basis
But after the arrival of Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich – he will not get the minutes that he would like and is now tipped to depart the Cam Nou
The Telegraph’s Matt Law tweeted this morning that any prospective deal is at the preliminary stage.
However, the Blues do want to bolster their attacking options, and the Gabonese forward is a player that Thomas Tuchel knows well from their time together at Borussia Dortmund.
Is Chelsea getting that desperate that they want to sign a striker that struggled in the Premier League towards the end of his time with Arsenal?
Yes, he has been decent in Spain – but La Liga is not the Premier League
Chelsea have made some very good signings this summer – but this is a deal that would be a massive mistake
