Chelsea told to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before next season: ‘They need someone better’

Aubameyang joined Chelsea on transfer deadline day last summer and has scored three goals in ten games since his £10 million move from Barcelona.

The 33-year-old flourished at Arsenal before joining Barcelona at the start of 2022, but he looks to be failing to regain his best form at Stamford Bridge.

As a result, Blues manager Graham Potter has occasionally rested Aubameyang in favor of using Kai Havertz as a false nine.

Former Chelsea and Republic of Ireland striker Tony Cascarino believes Aubameyang’s time at Stamford Bridge will be brief, and that Todd Boehly should hunt for a ‘better’ forward.

‘I’m not convinced Aubameyang is a guy Chelsea would be interested in next season,’ he told talkSPORT. ‘I believe what will happen is similar to what occurred to him in Barcelona.’

‘They brought him to the club, secured a huge signing, then immediately realized they needed to move on to a better striker.’

‘I believe Chelsea, as a football club, will have to do that.’ They’ll be done with Aubameyang at the end of the season and will search for a replacement.’

Aubameyang came on for the final 30 minutes of Chelsea’s 4-1 Premier League loss to Brighton on Saturday.

Cascarino was critical of Chelsea’s performance at the Amex Stadium and believes another summer addition, Marc Cucurella, is ‘lost’ at his new club.

‘Chelsea made mistakes all over the place,’ he continued. ‘It’s difficult to single out a single player or find a scapegoat. ‘The entire team was way off pace in the game.’ Even players such as Cucurella were all over the place. He appeared to be lost and confused.
