Todd Boehly considering £34m bid for Chelsea flop amid Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang transfer fear

Chelsea are said to be putting together a transfer plan in case a deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang falls through.

The 33-year-old has been heavily linked with a summer move to Stamford Bridge as Thomas Tuchel looks to strengthen his frontline.

According to football.london, the Blues made a £22 million bid for the former Arsenal captain on Wednesday evening.

It’s believed that talks with Barcelona about selling Aubameyang are still ongoing.

Tuchel is also said to be eager to reunite with the Gabonese international after a fruitful spell together at Borussia Dortmund.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is said to have identified the striker as a priority signing before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.

However, with only 10 days to complete a deal, an official agreement for the transfer of Aubameyang has yet to be reached, and the west Londoners appear to be considering other options.

Chelsea are considering a move for former Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, according to Sport.

According to the report, the 29-year-old has been identified as a possible replacement for the Barcelona talisman.

Morata, whose contract at the Metropolitano Stadium expires in 2024, is said to have piqued the Blues’ interest after scoring a brace against Getafe on the first day of the La Liga season.

Morata, who CIES Football Observatory values at €30 million-€40 million (£25 million-£33.8 million), struggled to establish himself at Stamford Bridge, scoring just 24 goals in 72 appearances.

With his poor goal-scoring record in mind, the Spain international stated that he never felt ‘loved or appreciated’ at the club.

“I had lost confidence in myself previously. I was very upset by the opinion of the people in England. I think they caught me in the middle of everything,” he told Goal, speaking in 2019. “I didn’t quite feel loved or appreciated by the club or the fans. I started very well at Chelsea, but an injury in the end leaves you a bit stuck.

“As bad as it was, I still scored 15 goals and won the FA Cup… but I was out of the World Cup, and for me that was the hardest thing that could happen to me in my life. I’ve dreamed of being able to play in a World Cup since I was 10 years old, and I chose Chelsea because I thought it would be the best club to later be able to play in the World Cup.”
