Chelsea FC's Aubameyang set to join a top French side
Chelsea FC forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to join the long list of elite players making an exit from the club this summer.
Gabon and Chelsea FC forward star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is poised to make his exit from Stamford Bridge in the summer 2023 transfer window according to recent reports.
The former Arsenal and Barcelona star is reportedly set to join the French Ligue 1 in a deal estimated to be worth over six million euros.
French Ligue 1 side Marseille has shown interest in offering the Gabonese a two-year deal that would see him remain at the side till 2026.
This would be a welcome move for Aubameyang whose return to the Premier League with Chelsea is one that would want to be forgotten by the player.
The quality of Auba is something that has remained consistent although he was not an option considered by Frank Lampard and Graham Potter who had a woeful run with the Blues in the 2022/2023 season.
From all indications, the former Barcelona star is not part of the plans of the new head coach at Chelsea Mauricio Pochettino.
Auba did not travel with the squad to the US to kick start the pre-season tour ahead of a new season.
The move to the south of France could be the catalyst Aubameyang needs to rediscover his form and reach new heights on the pitch. After a challenging period at Chelsea, where he struggled to make a significant impact, a fresh start at Marseille offers the perfect opportunity for him to showcase his skills and regain his confidence.
The change in environment, coupled with the support of his new teammates and coaching staff, could prove instrumental in unlocking his true potential once again.
Many had anticipated a move back to Barcelona, but from all indications, this is far from happening.
Olympique Marseille and Chelsea will discuss about Pierre Aubameyang this week. Talks scheduled in order to reach an agreement and let Pierre join OM. 🔵🇬🇦— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) July 18, 2023
