The interest in Aubameyang comes amid Chelsea spinning multiple plates at once, both in terms of exits and arrivals. They seemingly made huge progress in a deal for Brighton defender Marc Cucurella on Wednesday and, although the Seagulls publicly denied that a full agreement had been reached, a £52.5million deal is still expected to go through.
Barcelona midfielder and Manchester United target Frenkie de Jong is also thought to be of major interest, and could be discussed with the Spanish side along with a potential swoop for Aubameyang. To top it off, the Blues are reportedly refusing to give up on Leicester City star Wesley Fofana, despite cries from manager Brendan Rodgers that he is not for sale.
While Chelsea’s transfer movement appears urgent, one star name they already have in the door is Raheem Sterling and Tuchel has wasted no time in singing his praises.
