Much has been said about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's arrival at Chelsea. Barcelona seems to want to get rid of the Gabonese, and according to the media, one of the interested parties is Chelsea. What is positive is that Aubameyang worked with Thomas Tuchel in Borussia Dortmund.
At the press conference, Tuchel spoke about the possibility of such a transfer and praised the Gabonese, who was well remembered. “This is totally separate from anything that is happening now, but I enjoyed a lot working with Auba while I was at Dortmund.
“Some players stay your players because you were very, very close. And Auba is one of those players."- he said, as quoted by metro.co.uk
Thomas Tuchel was asked to comment on the situation between Mikel Arteta and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, when the Spaniard decided to take away the captain's armband from Aubameyang.
However, Tuchel did not have similar problems. “There was always straight away this close bond. They always stay your players in a way”. “I experienced no issues with him, but this has nothing to do with the situation in Arsenal, about which I will also not comment out of respect.
“In Dortmund there was never an issue”.
Chelsea FC wants reinforcements in defense and their target has been Wesley Fofana for a long time. However, Brendan Rodgers, the manager of Leicester, revealed that there were offers that the club rejected.
Rodgers believes that this season could be important for Fofana and that it will be of great importance for the team. There was two, but nowhere near what the club would consider. ‘We’re not looking to sell. Naturally if there’s interest from other clubs, that is looked at by the club.
He’s a top young defender and there are not too many around his age.’ ‘Wesley is quite calm on the situation. He is aware of the interest. He’s just getting on with his work.’ ‘Another year for him at least would be really important for his development,’ Rodgers added.
We will see what happens, but it is obvious that Chelsea has serious plans this season. They want to fight for the very top, even for the title. Manchester City and Liverpool are still the main favorites to win the Premiership, but nothing should be said in advance.
There are many strong teams, and it will be interesting to follow the Premiership this season. We expect top matches and a lot of excitement just like before.
