Spanish champions Barcelona are no longer interested in signing Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo.

Aubameyang is keen on leaving Chelsea this summer after scoring just three goals in 21 appearances for Chelsea since joining from Barcelona last summer.

Barcelona considered re-signing the 33 year old striker this summer but have now decided against pursuing a deal for the striker.

Meanwhile, according to a report on Get Football News France, Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is nearing agreements with two Saudi Arabian clubs.

The 33 year old striker, who only joined Chelsea last summer from Barcelona, is now close to leaving Chelsea.

The report adds: “An agreement on a pre-contract with the Saudi Private Investment Fund is close to being found. He would join either Al-Ahli Saudi FC or Al-Shabab FC.

“Aubameyang wouldn’t be against a final season in Europe, but no club has yet to display a concrete interest in the former Saint-Étienne forward.

“During what is now likely to be Aubameyang’s one and only season at Chelsea, the Gabon international scored just three goals in 22 appearances.”
