European Clubs Keep Tabs on Displaced Chelsea Star Prior to Summer Transfer Window – Reports

Inter Milan are reportedly planning a summer move for Chelsea star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Because he is not in Graham Potter’s plans, the striker will be free to leave Stamford Bridge.

According to Gazzetta, Inter have entered the race to sign Aubameyang this summer. They are now competing for the forward’s signature with Barcelona and MLS teams.

According to the report, Inter sees Aubameyang as the ideal replacement for Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian has not been at his best this season and his loan deal is unlikely to be extended in the summer.

When the transfer window opens, Barcelona will also look to re-sign their former player. They wanted to sign him in January as well, but La Liga rules prevented them from doing so.

Aubameyang has not played much for Chelsea, but Potter believes he still has a chance to start, saying:

“He is vying for a spot on the team. Excellent reaction to the situation we’ve been in. He is available for hire.” Chelsea hint at Aubameyang decision amid interest from Inter and Barcelona

This season, Chelsea did not include Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in their Champions League squad for the knockout stage. They needed to deregister one player to make room for a new signing, so Potter decided to release the former Arsenal star.

Explaining his decision, Potter said:

“I don’t think it’s going to be difficult [not having Aubameyang] because Pierre’s a professional and of course I understand he will be disappointed. It was a tough decision, a tough call, we had three coming in and two had to go out, so he was the one that missed out.”

He added:

“He’s done nothing wrong at all. We wanted to give David some game time today, in terms of seeing where he’s at and give him that opportunity. We saw that one flash of what he’s got. Pierre’s just unfortunate and he’ll be fighting for his place for the rest of the season.”

Potter continued:

“Whichever decision we made there was always going to be a conversation about it, of course, but it was my decision. It was a tough decision, absolutely, but sometimes you have to make these calls and like I said it is absolutely nothing bad against him. He’s done nothing wrong at all.”

Chelsea face Real Madrid in the quarterfinals of the Champions League next month.
