Chelsea have made a move to sign Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The 33-year-old was Arsenal’s ex-captain who was shipped out of the club by Mikel Arteta for disciplinary issues.

Aubameyang has done well in his short time at Arsenal, and Arsenal legend Ray Parlour is backing him to do well at Chelsea.

Parlour was asked by talkSPORT Breakfast host Alan Brazil whether Aubameyang’s potential move to Stamford Bridge would ruin his legacy at Arsenal.

Parlour said: “I don’t think Arsenal fans would be too happy.

“[Chelsea are] Arsenal’s rivals, that’s who they’re going to be competing with if they’re going to try and get in that top four this season.

“But Aubameyang has been pushed out, he might want to play in the Premier League still, Mikel Arteta made it clear he’s going to be leaving.”

He then added: “For me it’s a no brainer for Chelsea, it really is. [Timo] Werner has gone back to RB Leipzig, so they’re lacking goals.

“So Aubameyang will definitely score. Before he signed his new contract at Arsenal, he was brilliant. He won the FA Cup for Arsenal on his own.

“So he’d be a good signing, if you can get him for one season, he’ll be coming back to prove people wrong that’s what he’ll be trying to do.”
