This summer, Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang changed his mind about joining Chelsea.
The Gabon international was reportedly determined to remain at Camp Nou and did not want to move from Barcelona to Chelsea.
Barcelona needs to sign Jules Kounde for €55 million (£46.4 million), but they are currently unable to do so because of their financial situation.
Although Aubameyang joined in February, it now seems that he is closer to leaving Barcelona than Frenkie de Jong, who the club had hoped to sell.
Sky Sport Germany reports that Aubameyang is now close to joining, as an agreement between Chelsea and Barcelona is now close.
According to the report, Thomas Tuchel has been the driving force behind Chelsea’s push to sign Aubameyang.
Tuchel still has a positive relationship with Aubameyang following their time together at Borussia Dortmund.
