In the last few days, an intense rumor has been unleashed in the football world that Olympique de Marseille is trying to convince Chelsea to sign striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. It seems that the Gabonese player has not had a good start in his first season in the London team, with a testimonial participation on the field of play, which has led the club’s chief executive, Todd Boehly, to seek his departure.
Known for his speed and goalscoring abilities, Aubameyang has been one of the most prominent players in European football in recent years. However, his time at Chelsea has been difficult and he has failed to show his true potential. This has led Olympique de Marseille to take an interest in him and take advantage of the situation to get his services at a lower price than they could have expected in advance.
His wish is to stay in Europe
Although Aubameyang has received dizzying offers from Saudi Arabia, sources close to the player indicate that his desire is to remain in Europe and continue to compete in the top leagues. This has generated greater interest in the signing of him by the French club, which sees in him an opportunity to strengthen its lead and boost his performance next season.
Olympique de Marseille are aware that the competition for Aubameyang will be fierce, as other European clubs have also shown interest in the striker. However, they trust their sports project led by Marcelino García Toral, the new coach.
