- According to Fabrizio Romano, the English team would be interested in signing the Ca striker and would have already started contacts with his entourage to test his incorporation
The next few days of the transfer market promise to be very intense at Can Barca. With ten days to go until the start of the league, the Barca club still wants to reinforce itself ( Azpilicueta, Marcos Alonso, Bernardo Silva ), but they also have work to do in the ‘exit operation’ and there are several players who know that they must find a new team if they want to have minutes next season.
However, a footballer who seemed to have a place in the Barca squad could change his mind in the face of strong interest from one of the great clubs in the Premier League. We are talking about striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (33 years old), who according to journalist Fabrizio Romano would be on Chelsea‘s list of future prospects to support the London team’s attack.
Chelsea have already let Romelu Lukaku leave this summer, on loan to Inter with a purchase option, and are considering an offer from RB Leipzig for Timo Werner, so if the German leaves they will have to look for a replacement. Aubameyang would meet the profile that the ‘blues’ are looking for and even those around him would have already been contacted by Chelsea to find out his predisposition to a new change of scenery.
It should be remembered that Aubameyang arrived at Barca last February, after terminating his contract with Arsenal, and signed a contract until 2025, but with an option to break his agreement in 2023 in order to be a free agent. Chelsea is aware of this situation and will seek to press to achieve the signing of him.
