By now, the Journalists have probably realized that we are short of a quality winger in our squad!
Also given that the silly season is at its full flow, the next name that has popped up in our alleged shopping list is of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Surprised?
According to the reports published in the Daily Star:
“Chelsea have joined Liverpool and Manchester City in the battle to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Dortmund have slapped an initial £28.7m asking price on their coveted star, however, stiff competition from wealthy clubs may see his valuation soar in the coming weeks.”

For the fans who haven’t seen Aubameyang, the 26-year-old is capable of playing as a striker and a winger. Known for his lightning-fast speed, Aubameyang has scored 30 goals in his couple of seasons at Dortmund. But do we need him at Chelsea?
Yes, we do need a winger before the next season commences, but we can do far better than an Aubameyang kind of signing.
We have already seen the likes of Salah, whose game mainly depends on his speed, struggle in the Premier League. Aubameyang is more experienced and currently a better player than Salah but still, not the player Chelsea needs going forward.
If we are to challenge for the Champions League next season, we should probably go for a more elite player and that too after we have sorted out our Central Midfield and Defence! I am pretty sure this might be another “shoot in the dark” kind of journalism and its very doubtful we even have of interest in the player at that kind of steep price. Might as well throw in few more millions and activate that Antoine Griezmann’s clause, eh?
Besides that kind of hair-do doesn’t work at Chelsea. By the way, what do you guys think? Is Aubameyang good enough for Chelsea?
