A year ago, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined Chelsea. On the advice of Thomas Tuchel, then in office, the English club got hold of the Gabonese to compensate for the departure of Romelu Lukaku. It looked like a good move since the striker had the advantage of knowing the Premier League well since his time at Arsenal. But his return to London did not go as planned. Tuchel, to whom he is close, was sacked at the beginning of September. Graham Potter, who replaced him, gradually put the former ASSE player aside.

In the winter transfer window, Chelsea tried to find a way out for him. The Blues had also reached an agreement with Los Angeles FC. But PEA was unwilling to join the Major League Soccer franchise. He saw himself staying in Europe, where AC Milan and Barça followed his case. Moreover, “Aubame” was more to return Catalonia, he who sacrificed himself in the summer of 2022 to bail out the club’s coffers. But a departure in the winter of 2023 was more than complicated since the player had already played for two clubs during the same season, namely FC Barcelona and Chelsea.

Excluded from the Chelsea list for the Champions League during the second half of the season, he had to take his troubles patiently. Indeed, he trained during the week and was set aside when the London team played. A situation he no longer wants to experience. This summer again, the center forward will be affected by the transfer window. Several stables have looked into his case. Inter Milan had an eye on him. But he was not the priority of the Lombards who recorded the arrival of Marcus Thuram and are working on the probable return of Romelu Lukaku. Barça has also been cited as a base. But Blaugrana have financial worries and it’s not possible for them to pay the player’s hefty salary.

This would not be a problem for Saudi clubs. In June, Sport explained that Al Ahly and Al Shabab were on the case. Recently, the Daily Mail revealed that Al-Ettifaq, the club coached by Steven Gerrard, are interested in signing him. But for the moment, no club is concretely going on the offensive. And if he thought he had a chance with Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea, Aubameyang is set. THE DailyMail explains that his return to training was deliberately delayed until Monday by the Argentinian (like those of Lukaku and Ziyech) who wants a small group, made up of elements on which he will bet this season. Which is obviously not the case for PEA, who must regret having left Barça last year.
