Chelsea will look to sell some key players in the summer as they look to balance the books.

According to reports in Italy and Spain, both AC Milan and Atletico Madrid tried to sign Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the winter transfer window.

The former Arsenal striker has been left out of the Champions League squad and was again missing as the Blues drew with Fulham on Friday night, his absence raised a few questions as Chelsea looked like they could do with a natural finisher.

Aubamenyang was signed by former manager Thomas Tuchel, but the German was sacked hours after his arrival and he’s failed to recapture his fine form he had with Barcelona that kickstarted the move to Stamford Bridge.

According to LondonWorld sources, Aubameyang is fine with leaving the club in the summer and has not made a fuss about being left out of Graham Potter’s 25 man squad that will take on one of his former teams, Borussia Dortmund.

The Blues have brought in the likes of Joao Felix, Enzo Fernandez and Mykhailo Mudryk to try and reshape the direction of the club but part of the next deal is to find a way of balancing the books and Aubameyang could be let go for as little as £15 million in the summer.

The Gabonese has also been linked to the MLS even though aged just 33, he will feel that he still has enough left in him to be able to play in Europe.

Meanwhile, Chelsea will hope that they can return to winning ways when they travel to West Ham in the league on Saturday.

A win against the Hammers will serve as a perfect preparation for the Champions League game against Dortmund next week.
