Chelsea In Talks Over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Chelsea has been reported to submit an offer to sign Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Blues have offered £15 million in a deal that would also see left-back Marcos Alonso make his way to Camp Nou. Barcelona demand £21million to complete the move.

The Gabon international joined the Spanish giants from Arsenal in January 2022 but has fallen down the pecking order following the summer arrival of talisman Robert Lewandowski.

Barcelona manager Xavi has expressed his desire to keep Aubameyang in Catalonia, but the sale may help the club’s financial crisis.

Speaking at a press conference last Friday, Xavi said: ‘I am counting on him. I’m really delighted with him, he can help us.

The striker netted 11 goals in just 17 LaLiga appearances last season, but a reunion with former Borussia Dortmund manager, Thomas Tuchel in west London is now on the cards.
