British source claim that Atletico Madrid are surprisingly linked with Chelsea’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gabon international was signed by Chelsea in 2022 from Barcelona for a fee of 12 million euros. He has a contract until 2024 with the club.
The striker has banged in 3 goals and provided one assist in 16 matches for Chelsea this term on all fronts.
The 33-year-old is the best striker in Gabon. Aubameyang has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 30 goals in 73 senior appearances for the Gabon national team.
Diego Simeone is looking to shore up his attacking options and Chelsea’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang happens to be a target.
Someone with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s skillset will undoubtedly add more quality to Simeone‘s attack.
The former Barcelona man is a decent finisher in front of the opponent’s goal and can also create some promising opportunities for his teammates to find the back of the net. His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.
According to the report, “Atletico Madrid are eyeing a move for Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. With Joao Felix is on the verge of sealing a loan move to Chelsea from Atletico, AS says Aubameyang could move the other way as they look for cheap options to bolster their attacking options. Atletico believe they can secure a cut-price deal for Aubameyang considering his struggles at Stamford Bridge.“
