Transfer: Aubameyang takes decision on leaving Barcelona for Chelsea
Barcelona striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would prefer to stay in Spain rather than return to the Premier League with Chelsea, according to Sport.
Thomas Tuchel is in need of a striker after losing Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner.
And the German believes Aubameyang has the right profile to be added to his squad.
Aubameyang has a great relationship with Tuchel and joined Barcelona in January after his contract with Arsenal was terminated.
From then until the end of the season, the Gabonese netted 13 times for the Catalans.
However, Barcelona’s financial position and the high-profile arrival of Robert Lewandowski, has dramatically shifted the picture for Aubameyang.
According to new reports in Spain, Aubameyang is keen to stay at Barcelona because he feels “very comfortable” at the club and has bonded well with his new team-mates.
Also, Barca would rather sell Memphis Depay than the former Gunners’ skipper.
