Barcelona have strengthened the attack with the signing of Robert Lewandowski.

However, reports claim one of Barcelona’s strikers may have to leave the club this summer.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is keen on strengthening his attack, and Chelsea have been linked with a move for Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Previous reports have also linked Chelsea with Memphis Depay.

According to reliable transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could part ways with Barcelona this summer — but only if Memphis Depay stays.

His report claims one of Memphis or Aubameyang may have to leave the club.

“Only one player between Memphis Depay and Pierre Aubameyang will leave Barcelona this summer,” Romano tweeted.

“Depay is negotiating free agency with FCB as revealed last week, Memphis will only accept in case of top clubs bid – Juventus among those interested.”

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has insisted that Chelsea still need to strengthen the defence and attack.

When asked about further signings before the end of the window after Chelsea’s win over Everton, Tuchel told Sky Sports: “Yeah, if we can add, we add.

“Maybe not necessarily a midfielder as a first option but we’re open for everything.

“I think we can use new energy, new legs and fresh input to bring us to a new level.

“If not, then we will push this team but I think we could use some more input and some more quality. We’re on it but we will not tell you [who].”
