Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is considering coming out of international retirement following a request from the president of Gabon, according to GOAL.

The report adds: “The Gabonese striker met with the country’s president Ali Bongo Ondimba, who is hoping he has convinced Aubameyang to come out of retirement.

“The 33-year-old and his family have a close relationship with the president, with the forward now ‘seriously considering’ returning to action for the national team who he scored 30 goals for across 72 caps.

“Gabon are looking to secure their place at the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations, which Aubameyang could play a part in if he is to return to international action.”
