Chelsea “considering” Barcelona’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as “potential new striker” – report

Premier League side Chelsea have added Barcelona’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to their list of potential targets for the striker position and have already started talks with the player, according to a report by the great Fabrizio Romano.

Chelsea are still in the early stages of the process and have not yet spoken to Barca, but it is quite a surprise to see the Blues potentially making a move for Aubameyang as we had not heard any rumors about it from reliable sources.

It will be interesting to see if the two clubs will eventually negotiate some sort of swap deal with Chelsea’s two Barca goals in César Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso. Chelsea reportedly also want Frenkie De Jong, so we could see the initial stages of a mega deal between the two sides.

Aubameyang will happily remain at Barca, but his role will be significantly reduced with the arrival of Robert Lewandowski, and he could be tempted to rejoin former coach Thomas Tuchel if he is promised more minutes in London.

This really came out of nowhere, but is now a really interesting story to watch.
