Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Chelsea

Arsenal are unlikely to let Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leave the club for Chelsea in the upcoming summer transfer window.

That’s the opinion of ESPN pundit Ian Darke, who believes Arsenal would avoid letting Aubameyang join a Premier League rival even if Frank Lampard’s side meet Arsenal’s reported £20million valuation.

“Chelsea could afford him, but would Arsenal let him go to a direct London rival like Chelsea? Probably not,” Darke told ESPN FC.

“Chelsea certainly mean business, they’ve got Tammy Abraham up front an England international, but Aubameyang could play on the left, too. You can’t rule anything out in football, I’d be a bit surprised if it was to Chelsea, though.”
