Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang expected to struggle at Chelsea

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will not end Chelsea’s striker curse.

Barcelona are looking to offload Aubameyang this summer after he deemed surplus following the arrival of Robert Lewandowski.

The former Arsenal captain has been linked with a move to Premier League giants Chelsea who are still on the lookout for a central forward this transfer window.

Former Blues defender Frank Lebouef believes the 33-year-old forward would struggle at Chelsea unless Tuchel changes his tactics to accommodate the Gabon international.

Lebouef told ESPN: “I have some question marks, he’s over 30 and the last two years haven’t been very good for him in terms of goals and consistency.

“I have a lot of respect for his father who was a former teammate I followed Pierre-Emerick’s career in Dortmund and then Arsenal. He’s a fantastic player but I want to see before judging.

“It depends on Tuchel’s decision and how he wants to play. If it’s like against Spurs with the rotation up front we don’t know who plays in the middle or on the side, I don’t think it’s going to work and it won’t be useful to have Aubameyang.

“But we saw last season it didn’t happen with Lukaku so why suddenly will Tuchel change the way he wants to play I don’t know. I don’t see that coming.

“I don’t know if Aubameyang will be stronger than the curse that hits all strikers that have played for Chelsea lately.

“I hope he will be successful but I want to see before judging.”
