Tuchel ‘to contact’ Aubameyang

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has said he will contact Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang following the news that the Gabon international is to be stripped of the Arsenal captaincy.

Aubameyang worked under Tuchel at Borussia Dortmund where the pair won the DFB Pokal in 2017 – the German coach’s first major honour as a coach.

With speculation about Aubameyang’s future at Arsenal now rife, Tuchel says he will now contact the striker “at some point”.

Barcelona swap ‘details’

Arsenal can land a former Arsene Wenger target by approving a swap offer from Barcelona which would see Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang head to Spain.

Barca are set to offer Aubameyang an escape route out of the Emirates Stadium following his latest troubles at the club.

But with the Spanish giants struggling financially, they are expected to be in the market for swap deals in the upcoming January transfer window.

That could see them pursue a deal for Auba that would see as little money changing hands as possible, and they have a number of big stars they’d like to shift from their wage bill who could be up for grabs.

One such player was previously targeted by Arsene Wenger, and could make an impact in the Premier League if the move all goes through.
