Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is reportedly keen on rejoining Barcelona during the summer transfer window.

The Gabon international made the surprise switch to the Blues from Camp Nou last summer after he fell down the pecking order.

He has since struggled for regular game time with the Blues and it is now claimed that he is determined to return to Barcelona.

Aubameyang is prepared to play second fiddle to Robert Lewandowski. He has already confirmed his desire to his former teammates.

Chelsea are open to sanctioning his sale but they won't allow him to leave on the cheap, having paid £10m to Barcelona last summer.

The west London giants may demand at least £6-7m from the Blaugrana for the striker, who has played just 800 minutes this season.

Aubameyang was brilliant during his first stint with the Spanish giants. He scored 13 goals from 24 games across all competitions.

Despite his success, Barcelona decided to sign Lewandowski last summer. Aubameyang is now ready to play as the Pole's deputy.
