Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang news

Aubameyang close to Chelsea move?

Chelsea are confident of landing the signature of former Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer.

The Gabon star left the Gunners on a free transfer in February this year to join Barcelona on a permanent basis.

He was excellent for them during the backend of last season, but could still leave during the ongoing transfer window.

The 33-year-old was the first-choice striker earlier this year, but Robert Lewandowski has now taken his place.

With the lack of a guaranteed starting spot, the Blues are confident that they can lure him to the English capital again.

Thomas Tuchel has a good relationship with Aubameyang from their Dortmund days and he wants a reunion.

The German is prepared to guarantee Aubameyang with a regular starting role which is not assured at the Camp Nou.

On top of this, Aubameyang will receive a great contract from the Blues. Chelsea believe this should persuade him.

Barcelona currently want around 30 million euros, but the Blues are optimistic of lowering the eventual fee.
