Exciting message sent as Chelsea ‘ready to sign’ £100M duo ‘who are no longer wanted’
Sky Sports News chief reporter Kaveh Solhekol has admitted that Chelsea are ready to sign Frenkie De Jone and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer
Chelsea have not got all the transfer deals done that they would like this summer and are leaving it until the final few weeks of the season to get some business done
And that has led to reports in the media that Chelsea are interested in both De Jong and Aubameyang – who are both tipped to leave Barca this summer as they are no longer needed at the club
Now – amid all the speculation – Solhekol has opened up and claimed that Chelsea are not ready to pay the big money to secure deals for the duo – he told Sky Sports: “Chelsea are ready to sign both Frenkie de Jong and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona if the La Liga club allow both players to leave.
“Of course, Manchester United have already agreed a £72m fee with Barcelona for De Jong. Chelsea are willing to match that £72m offer and significantly, they can offer him Champions League football which Manchester United can’t.
“As far as Aubameyang is concerned, he moved to Barcelona on a free transfer from Arsenal in January. He’s happy at Barcelona, but he has a very, very good relationship with Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.
“Tuchel won’t talk about Aubameyang in public too much but everybody knows, Aubameyang scored 79 goals for him in two seasons at Borussia Dortmund. Tuchel would like to bring him to Chelsea .”
We can easily see just why Chelsea are interested in signing De Jong – he really is a world class player that could make a big impact at Stamford Bridge
But we are not fans of Aubameyang and believe he is done in the Premier League – he would definietly be a panic buy if Chelsea do manage to wrap up a deal for the striker
But it will be interesting to see how this all plays out
