Following an underwhelming start to life with Chelsea, the London-based club have been told to ‘move away’ from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang next season.
The Gabonese international made a £10 million deadline day move from Barcelona, ending a nine month spell with the Catalan giants. Since then, Auba has made 10 appearances for Chelsea, scoring three goals along the way.
Given his goalscoring exploits with Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal in the past, Aubameyang’s low output with his new side has come as a worry to former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino.
The former Republic of Ireland international mentioned that the club should look for a better striker next season and that Chelsea are in a similar situation now to that of when Auba signed for Barcelona.
“I’m not even sure Aubameyang is a player Chelsea will be looking at into next season,”Cascarino told TalkSport.
“I think what will happen is what happened to him at Barcelona. They brought him to the club, got a big signing, then realised quite quickly they need to move away to a better striker.
“I think Chelsea will have to do that as a football club. They’ll come away from Aubameyang by the end of the season and they’ll look for an alternative without a doubt.”
