Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is back in London after being spotted in Milan last week.

Chelsea are faced with a big decision in the summer with striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang set for an exit after being overlooked for a spot in the Champions League squad by Graham Potter.

The striker was also left out of the 0-0 draw game against Fulham on Friday night and was spotted in Milan hours after the final whistle at Stamford Bridge.

Some Chelsea fans who saw pictures of the striker in Milan on their way home from the game will delighted to know that he was given the weekend off by his manager and he took the chance to jet off to the Italian city.

On the field it’s been a tough time for the former Arsenal striker as he’s only bagged three goals in his first six months and there are growing calls within a section of the fan base to cash in on him.

Aubameyang is not new to situations like this as he had his contract at Arsenal mutually terminated due to a string of misdemeanours, poor time keeping and fading form.

His move to Barcelona seemed outcome for both player and club and he scored 13 goals for Barcelona before receiving the call from Thomas Tuchel to come to Stamford Bridge.

The striker has interest from MLS side Los Angeles FC even though sources close to the player have told LondonWorld that he will not rush into making a decision on his future at the moment.

He is likely to be back in contention as Chelsea take on West Ham in the Premier League this weekend even though his long term future at the club will remain unresolved.

Chelsea are ninth in the league table and will have to start picking up points after spending almost £600 million on the last two windows.
