Marseille Want Aubameyang From Chelsea : While discussions with Alexis Sanchez are at a standstill, Olympique Marseille inquires about the availability of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (34 years old). Under contract until 2024 with Chelsea, the Gabonese international is very popular with Marcelino.
After Geoffrey Kondogbia and Renan Lodi, Olympique de Marseille is accelerating their efforts to find an attacker.
The future of Alexis Sanchez – officially without a club – is not known yet and the Marseille leaders are studying a plan B.
As announced by the Spanish media Relevo, and confirmed by RMC Sport, manager Marcelino appreciates the profile of the former Arsenal and Barcelona striker , Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gabonese striker, under contract until 2024 with Chelsea, has solid experience and knows Ligue 1 perfectly, where he played between 2011 and 2013 with Saint-Etienne.
However, the file looks complicated, even if in Marseille, it is estimated that there are chances to attract the former Barça striker. The player did not give his consent anyway.
For its part, the club wants to have the player at a lower cost. Marseille are counting on the fact that Chelsea no longer wants him. In England in recent months, the media mentioned that the player is on a salary of more than 180,000 euros per week.
The Gabonese only played 22 games in all competitions in 2022/23 , including one with Barça, for only three goals scored (one in the Premier League and two in the Champions League).
A possible arrival of the former Dortmund man would come to fill a depopulated offensive area at Marseille , where only Vitinha acts as number 9.
