Chelsea transfer news: Barcelona sent ‘player plus money’ swap offer for Aubameyang | Soccer | sport

Chelsea have reportedly sent Barcelona a player-plus-cash offer for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as Thomas Tuchel eyes a reunion with his former Borussia Dortmund striker. The Blues had lengthy discussions internally over the prospect of signing the former Arsenal captain before meeting his representatives on Thursday.

Now it looks like Chelsea are ready to move on with a swoop for the Gabon international, who has only been at Barcelona since January when he joined the Catalan giants on a free transfer.

According AthleticismChelsea have now submitted a bid worth £15million plus Marcos Alonso to sign the frontman.

Barcelona have apparently yet to respond, although they are interested in the Spanish full-back, who was reportedly set to join Barcelona last week.

Alonso has been excused from training and was expected to seal a permanent move to Camp Nou, which has yet to materialise.

Chelsea are yet to sign a new striker despite allowing Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner to join Inter Milan (on loan) and RB Leipzig.

Tuchel wants to keep Armando Broja but the Albanian could now have more competition ahead of him if Aubameyang seals his move to west London.

Xavi still wants to keep the 33-year-old but Barcelona could be forced into a sale due to his current financial situation.

Barcelona are looking for around £25million to agree a sale, but Alonso’s inclusion could be an added attraction for the Camp Nou hierarchy.

Chelsea are also believed to still be keen on a move for Frenkie de Jong, although his future is still undecided.

The Blues can offer Champions League football that would give them the edge over Manchester United in any transfer battle.

Cesar Azpilicueta was a transfer target alongside Alonso earlier in the window before Chelsea blocked a deal.

The captain has since signed an improved deal at Stamford Bridge despite his interest in a move to Barca.
