Pierre Emerick Aubameyang to Chelsea: one thing holding up Chelsea’s deal to sign the striker
Chelsea is making an effort to provide Thomas Tuchel the striker he requested during the summer transfer window, but the transaction has been taking a while.
Now is the time to make the important decisions regarding this offer, including whether or not to walk away and pursue an alternative target. Because this has developed into yet another transfer issue, it is still unclear whether or not the deal will be approved.
Aubameyang has already agreed to personal terms with Chelsea, and both Chelsea and Tuchel are definitely interested in signing him.
However, the current big obstacle is Chelsea’s attempt to include Marcos Alonso in the same deal, despite the fact that it was always assumed Barcelona wanted to conduct that deal independently. In conclusion, there is still no agreement on the fee, but negotiations are ongoing.
