Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ‘better suited’ at Chelsea than Cristiano Ronaldo as Barcelona striker linked with Premier League move


Jason Cundy thinks Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would be a perfect fit at Chelsea.

The Blues are keen to sign a new striker this summer after allowing Romelu Lukaku to leave the club on a season-long loan with Inter Milan.

There is also speculation surrounding Timo Werner’s future which means the need for a new striker could intensify further.

Cristiano Ronaldo is one player who has been linked with a move to the club after admitting he would like to leave Manchester United this summer.

Meanwhile, Aubameyang has also become a new target.

The former Arsenal man only moved to Barcelona in January but after the club signed Robert Lewandowski, it means the Gabon international could be available.

With the 33-year-old boasting plenty of Premier League experience, former Chelsea defender Cundy believes he could be a decent addition to Thomas Tuchel’s squad.

Speaking on The Sports Bar, Cundy said: “Of those available, Aubameyang is not the worst, for me.

“Lewandowski rocked at Barcelona. Hasn’t he been told that the chances will now be limited for him? Wasn’t he told that? Lewandowski is ahead of Aubameyang, it’s obvious.

“I absolutely would have [at Chelsea].”

When asked if he would have Aubameyang or Ronaldo, Cundy replied: “I’d rather have Aubameyang. I want.

“Under Tuchel I just don’t see how Ronaldo would fit in. I don’t see how Tuchel would work with Ronaldo, it just doesn’t make sense with the way he wants to play.

“Aubameyang would be a better top for Chelsea than Ronaldo.”
