‘Graham Potter knows Chelsea star is not part of the club’s future’

Arsenal legend Ray Parlour believes Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is better off leaving Chelsea this January and moving to the MLS amid interest from Los Angeles FC.

Aubameyang has fallen out of favour under Graham Potter and didn’t even make the matchday squad for the goalless draw against Fulham last Friday. He was also dropped from Chelsea’s Champions League squad.

Parlour told talkSPORT: “It’s remarkable what’s happened, it looks like he’s got no confidence whatsoever.

“[MLS] would probably suit him – a little bit of razzmatazz, all the American fans will like something different and certainly he can score goals in MLS all day long.

“Chelsea, it hasn’t worked out, Graham Potter probably knows he’s not part of the club’s future, with the signings they’ve bought in as well he’s not going to get a game, so I can certainly see that deal going through.

“It’s all down to Aubameyang, if he doesn’t want to go and is happy where he is, he won’t go, he just has to get on with it until the end of the season.”

“He isn’t going to get anywhere else in the Premier League,” Parlour added.

“With his wages, what club would take him? Would someone gamble?”
