“European interest” could delay Aubameyang departure beyond those of other Saudi moves

Saudi Arabian clubs have offers on the table for about 5 or 6 Chelsea players.

Three of them look like they could be done deals very soon. Edouard Mendy, Hakim Ziyech and Kalidou Koulibaly have all accepted lucrative offers and are just waiting for Chelsea to agree transfer fees for them.

N’Golo Kante has effectively already gone on a free.

There is also a deal on the table for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but as Nizaar Kinsella revealed last night, we shouldn’t expect “rapid movement” on that front as he’s still keen to play in Europe. It’s a slightly funny situation as Aubameyang’s performances last year were at much more of a retirement league level than those of the initial 3.

Still, respect to him for holding out for better offers and wanting to play in Europe still. It seems like we could be waiting a little longer for this one to reach its conclusion. That’s not necessarily a bad thing
