Aubameyang to Chelsea?

Chelsea could make a surprise approach for Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during the summer transfer window.

The Gabon international signed a long-term deal with the Gunners on record wages last summer, but he had a disappointing 2020/21 season.

He netted just 15 goals over the course of the campaign, which was his worst scoring return since the 2010/11 season with Monaco.

According to The Telegraph, the Blues are keen on signing an elite striker, and they are looking at different options.

Romelu Lukaku confirmed that he will stay at Inter Milan next term, and it is reported that Aubameyang could be an alternative.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has a good relationship with Aubameyang from their time together at Borussia Dortmund.

The Gunners are not looking to part ways with Aubameyang, but a significant offer may change their stance.

He has two years remaining on his £300,000-a-week contract. He is valued at around £32 million by Transfermarkt.
