Chelsea submit £15million proposal to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with Marcos Alonso in line to head for Nou Camp August 19, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer
Chelsea have submitted a £15million offer to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona.
According to The Athletic, Marcos Alonso is also included in discussion with the wing-back heavily linked with a move in the opposite direction.
However chiefs at the Nou Camp are yet to respond to the Blues’ offer.
It’s thought that Xavi is keen to keep hold of the striker, however the club’s financial situation could take the situation out of his hands.
The 33-year-old ended his four-year association with Arsenal when he left the club in January this year in favour of a move to the La Liga champions.
With personal terms not thought to be an issue, it could bring an end to the player’s eight-month stay in Barcelona.
Since moving to the Nou Camp, Aubameyang has made 24 appearances for the club, scoring 13 goals in the process.
Discussing the interest on Thursday, talkSPORT’s football correspondent Alex Crook said: It could be a potentially decisive day in Chelsea’s chase for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
“We know he is their main target to fill that void left by Romelu Lukaku and his return to Italy. Talks are due to take place between Chelsea, Aubameyang and his advisors this afternoon.”
Crook added: “The impression I get is that Aubameyang isn’t desperate to leave Barcelona but we know they are still financially hamstrung. His manager Xavi wants him to stay but I think the board may have different ideas,” Crook said.
“It will be up to Thomas Tuchel and Todd Boehly to convince Aubameyang that Stamford Bridge is the place for him.”
