Aubameyang off to Saudi?

Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is considering offers from Saudi Arabia ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Gabon international joined the Blues from Barcelona last summer and he had a dismal campaign with only three goals.

The Blues are prepared to offload him in the coming weeks and reports claim that Aubameyang is on the radar of Saudi clubs.

The former Arsenal captain has the preference to rejoin Barcelona, but the La Liga giants seem reluctant to consider an offer.

The Catalan club are currently close to landing Vitor Roque from Athletico PR and he could play as Robert Lewandowski's back-up.

Hence, Aubameyang has no choice but to consider a move to the Saudi Pro League. Al-Hilal could be favourites to sign him.

Meanwhile, Romelu Lukaku has also been touted to secure a similar challenge following his loan spell with Inter Milan.

While Aubameyang could be released for free, Chelsea are expected to demand a sizeable fee for Lukaku's summer exit.
