Will Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang head to America?
Transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said on his social media on the 10th (Korean time), “Chelsea and LAFC are still waiting for the possibility of Aubameyang’s transfer. We still need positive signs from Aubameyang.”
Aubameyang joined Chelsea from Barcelona ahead of the season. He is a player who has already experienced the English Premier League (EPL) stage while playing for Arsenal in the past. In particular, in the 2018-19 season he was the joint top scorer of the EPL (22 goals, jointly awarded with Mohamed Salah-Sadio Mane)토토사이트, and the following season, he also ranked second in the scoring rankings (22 goals).
However, what followed was disappointing. In particular, in the first half of last season, he seemed to have completely lost his sharpness, and even controversy over his attitude, such as being late for the training ground, overlapped. In the end, Aubameyang was stripped of his captaincy, and his position was narrowed. And after terminating his contract with Arsenal in January of last year, he headed to Barcelona.
He had a good performance at Barcelona. In the second half of last season, Spanish Lagi scored 11 goals in 17 appearances. Thanks to Aubameyang’s performance, Barcelona overcame the initial sluggishness and finished the season in second place in the league. However, when Robert Lewandowski joined in the summer of last year, the possibility of a change in Aubameyang’s position came.
Chelsea did not miss this situation. Chelsea sent Romelo Lucaru on loan to Inter Milan ahead of this season, and Timo Werner also left for RB Leipzig. He did sign Raheem Sterling, but he needed a professional upfront striker. As a result, he struck out for the recruitment of Aubameyang. As a result, Aubameyang was reunited with coach Thomas Tuchel, who was a mentor during his time at Dortmund.
However, a variable occurred shortly after the start of the season. The Chelsea board sacked coach Tuchel and appointed head coach Graham Porter. Aubameyang didn’t get a chance under Porter’s system. He has made 11 league appearances so far, but has only started four times. In addition, Joao Felix and Mihailo Mudrik joined through the January transfer window.
Currently, Chelsea want to sell Aubameyang. Some teams are interested in him. That’s LAFC. LAFC are targeting Aubameyang to fill the void created by the recent retirement of Gareth Bale. It is well known in Korea as a team that Kim Moon-hwan played in the past.
