Everton, who urgently needs a striker, is trying to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has become a ‘Nakdong River duck egg’ from Chelsea, as a free agent (FA).
The British ‘Football Insider’ said on the 5th (Korean time), “Everton is watching the potential transfer of Chelsea striker Aubameyang. Everton is trying to sign Aubameyang as a free agent after failing to recruit striker several times in January.” reported.
Aubameyang was a striker with great speed and determination. He had a splendid heyday to the extent of winning the top scorer in each league during his time at Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal. However, he suffered a rapid aging curve. From the 2020-21 season, Aubameyang moved to Barcelona as he could no longer make an impact at Arsenal. Still, he recovered his condition by using the goalkeeper bit by bit in Barcelona. 메이저놀이터
When he was preparing for the new season, coach Thomas Tuchel, who had raised him in Dortmund in the past, approached him. Coach Tuchel, who was in charge of Chelsea at the time, urgently needed striker reinforcement, and tried to bring in Obameyang, who had passed his prime but knew how to use it. It was not easy to leave because there were signs of a revival in Barcelona, but Aubameyang believed in coach Tuchel and decided to transfer to Chelsea.
However, at the same time as his joining, news like thunder from the blue sky was delivered. There was a difference of opinion between owner Todd Boelli and coach Tuchel over their vision for the future. In the end, as soon as the transfer market was over, manager Tuchel was sacked, and manager Graham Porter, who directed Brighton, was appointed as his successor.
In this way, Obama became a duck egg in the Nakdong River. He decided to move to Chelsea after only looking at coach Tuchel, but he has no sense of being under coach Porter. This season, he scored only 3 goals and 1 assist in 17 appearances in all competitions. As Joao Felix was recruited in the winter transfer market, Aubameyang’s position became more cramped. Recently, he suffered the humiliation of being eliminated from the final list of Chelsea’s European Football Association (UFEA) Champions League (UCL).
In the midst of such an unfortunate day at Chelsea, Everton are approaching to scout him. Everton are in desperate need of a forward striker. With Anthony Gordon gone, he desperately wanted it in the winter transfer market, but failed to reinforce it. In a situation where the transfer market is over and only FA deals are being made, Aubameyang is looking forward to the possibility of terminating his contract with Chelsea.
The media said: “Aubameyang has 18 months left on his contract. Everton will require Chelsea to resolve their financial issues so that they can secure Aubameyang’s free agent transfer.
