Prior to Thursday’s deadline for the summer transfer window, Chelsea are in a rush to add a new striker.
Despite an early lead by the Blues against Southampton, who were in action on Tuesday night, the Saints pulled off an unexpected comeback to win the game.
Thomas Tuchel’s team had a rough start, winning only two of their first five games, and are currently seated eighth in the Premier League table, far from where they had hoped to be after spending more than £150 million on five new senior players, including Raheem Sterling from Manchester City.
The new owner Todd Boehly is reportedly working diligently to entice former Arsenal talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang back to London after realizing the need for a new center forward following the release of Timo Werner and the sale of Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan and RB Leipzig earlier in the transfer window.
Chelsea and Barcelona have not yet reached a complete agreement about Pierre Aubameyang. The meeting was in the afternoon. ?? #CFC
