Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is completing his medical to join Marseille right now.

He took to Twitter to state that the deal will be free, and he will join the club on a contract until 2026.

It has been widely expected that Aubameyang’s time at Stamford Bridge would only last a season, and it will certainly not go down as a memorable one as far as supporters are concerned.

After being brought in off the back of a request of former manager Thomas Tuchel, the striker played just one game in Europe before the German was sacked.

This should perhaps have gone down as a sign of things to come for the Gabon international at Stamford Bridge, as he only went on to find the net three times in all competitions.

Big goals in the Champions League against AC Milan even proved to be basically in vein, as he was unable to land himself a place in the squad to feature in the knockout stages of the competition.

Romano has now claimed that the medical to secure his exit from the club is occurring right now.

He said: “Told Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is undergoing medical tests as new OM player.

“Auba landed in Germany yesterday night and he’s now completing medical then will sign deal until 2026. Free transfer from Chelsea.”

The Blues will be hoping the combination of Christopher Nkunku, Nicolas Jackson and Armando Broja can do the job up front for them for the upcoming campaign.

If not, they may look back into the market and consider a move for Elye Wahi. It has even been claimed that personal terms have been agreed between the two parties over a potential deal.
