Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang linked with potential Chelsea escape

If there had been any remaining doubt about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s status at Chelsea, the fact he was left out of Graham Potter’s Champions League squad for the rest of this season dispelled them.

After using him pretty regularly at first, Potter has benched Auba more and more, and he was not in the squad for the draw with Fulham.

An exit suits both parties, and it seems there may be a taker for the former Arsenal man. Matteo Moretto of Relevo is reporting that Chelsea are in talks with Los Angeles FC about sending the Gabon striker to MLS.

Presumably we would let him go for free, or for very cheap, just to get him off the wage bill. It might still be a stretch for an American club financially, but Aubameyang may also take a pay cut in order to facilitate a move.

Whether he stays or goes, we may not see much more of him in a Chelsea shirt.
