Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came on for the final 30 minutes of the game against Brighton, but former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has revealed he has been less than impressed with the performance of the former Arsenal and Barcelona striker.

According to Cascarino, Chelsea may have to go for a new striker during the summer transfer window. Cascarino also revealed that the Gabon international had to be sold at Barcelona because he wasn’t top class enough for the Blaugrana.

The 33-year-old who joined Chelsea on transfer deadline day, has scored three goals in 10 appearances since his £10m move from Barcelona, but Cascarino has told his former side to upgrade.

“I’m not even sure Aubameyang is a player Chelsea will be looking at next season,” he told talkSPORT.

“I think what will happen is what happened to him at Barcelona.

“They brought him to the club, got a big signing, then realised quite quickly they need to move away to a better striker.

“I think Chelsea will have to do that as a football club. They’ll come away from Aubameyang by the end of the season and they’ll look for an alternative without a doubt.”
