Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Arsenal this summer, should he become available. Chelsea are trying to get to bolster their attacking options under manager Frank Lampard
The former Borussia Dortmund striker is about to enter the final year of his contract at The Emirates and there hasn’t been any sign of a contract extension so far, leaving him open to a move away from the club.
According to The Sun, Arsenal will be happy to let his deal run down if no club pays at least £20 million to sign him this summer.
If Chelsea are really interested in him, triggering his £20 Million release would see the Blues signing the striker, and with a relationship between the two London sides when it comes to transfer might make the deal easier.
Since joining Arsenal in 2018, the striker has scored 49 goals in 75 appearances for the North London club.
