Chelsea reaches an agreement with Barcelona for the signing of Aubameyang

London: Chelsea have reached an agreement with Barcelona to sign striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, while defender Marcos Alonso will go the other side, Sky Sports reported Thursday. The report states that the club of the English Premier League is expected to pay around 10 million pounds (11.56 million dollars) in addition to giving up Alonso to sign Aubameyang, who joined Barcelona in February after leaving Arsenal. The Gabonese international scored 13 goals in 24 games with the club Catalan, but left the accounts of club after signing Polish striker Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich and had to leave the players to comply with La Liga financial rules. And if Aubameyang’s transfer to Chelsea is completed, the player will return in Premier League after seven months of playing for four years with Chelsea’s London rivals Arsenal. He will also reunite with manager Thomas Tuchel, having previously worked together with Borussia Dortmund in Bundesliga. The 33-year-old was the Premier League top scorer in the 2018-2019 season and led Arsenal to win the FA Cup the following season, but last season had to fight with Arsenal and manager Mikel Arteta over disciplinary matters. Aubameyang, who has a three-year contract with Barcelona, ​​suffered a jaw injury during an armed robbery at his home and is expected to be out for three weeks. Chelsea played without a prominent forward after Romelu Lukaku returned to Inter in loan at the end of the season, while Timo Werner returned to Rasen Bal Sport Leipzig. The club Londoner has signed a number of prominent players in the current transfer period, including Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Coulibaly. (Reuters)
