Mikel Arteta essentially forced the striker out the club, wanting him gone no matter the lack of money received for his then club captain.

This saw him end up at Barcelona, where he quickly rediscovered his scoring touch.

It was believed that the signing was made with the trust that Thomas Tuchel would be able to get the best out of the striker. After all, they had worked together to much success at Borussia Dortmund before.

However, after just one game together Tuchel was sacked, leaving many believing his Chelsea career was already in limbo.

Despite that, he has remained a strong option for new manager Graham Potter, scoring in his last three games.

The Evening Standard have also claimed that he is being helpful behind the scenes, getting along with the staff and players at the club well.

His form will be impressing supporters, with him finding the net in both of the crucial Champions League games against former side AC Milan.

Those two games have seen the Blues go from bottom of the group to top, with a draw in the fixture between Dinamo Zagreb and RB Salzburg giving them a helping hand.

It will be interesting to see if Aubameyang is handed the start with the short turnaround to this weekend. Fans will be hoping that there could be an opportunity for Armando Broja to start, with him opening his account for the club last weekend against Wolves.
