Aubameyang joined Chelsea over the summer from FC Barcelona and had a decent start, scoring on his league debut and in two Champions League matches.
However, he has since gone four Premier League matches without a goal and has been used as a substitute twice by Graham Potter.
Now, former Blues star Tony Cascarino has warned Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang that he could find himself surplus to requirements at Chelsea, just as he did at Barcelona:
“I’m not even sure Aubameyang is a player Chelsea will be looking at into next season,” he 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.”
Among the strikers linked with Chelsea in recent weeks are Lautaro Martinez, in a potential £52m battle with Manchester United.
Victor Osimhen of Napoli is reportedly a more expensive option and Lille’s Jonathan David has been touted for Chelsea too.
