English football club, Chelsea have agreed on personal terms with Barcelona player, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and must now meet Barcelona’s €25 million (£21.4m/$25m) asking price.
Aubameyang is set to pen an initial two-year contract at Stamford Bridge with an option for a further year.
The player is hoping to have his future decided swiftly, as he is currently staying in a hotel after he was the victim of a home invasion and robbery last week.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has a close relationship with Aubameyang from their time together at Borussia Dortmund, and after a wobbly start to 2022-23, the head coach hopes the Gabon international can bring a spark to the club.
Barcelona are hoping that Aubameyang’s departure – and the potential exit of Miralem Pjanic – will free up funds and allow them to strengthen before the transfer window closes.
