Chelsea co-owner Boehly pushing Barcelona over Aubameyang sale

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is demanding they sign Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Blues co-owner Todd Boehly is seriously pushing for a deal, because of Tuchel's relationship with the Gabonese frontman.

In the week, Tuchel claimed that he was very close with Pierre-Emerick, saying: “I enjoyed working with him. It was a pleasure. This has nothing to do with the situation now, but some players stay your players because you were very, very close. We have a very close relationship."

Chelsea are serious about Aubameyang," Romano explained on his YouTube channel.

“The discussions are entering important stages.

“Todd Boehly is in direct contact with people who are close to the deal to prepare an opening proposal for the striker.

Chelsea are pushing because of Thomas Tuchel, who is a big fan of Aubameyang — their relationship is great."
