Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang reveals why he agreed to join Chelsea

Chelsea finally managed to complete the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on transfer deadline day.


On transfer deadline day, Chelsea finally brought in a new centre-forward.

The Blues managed to complete the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from FC Barcelona.

It is understood that a deal for the 33-year-old was worth around £12 million.

Following the move, the striker has explained why he decided to return to the Premier League and to a rival of his former club, Arsenal.

Auba’s “unfinished business”

Aubameyang has revealed that he opted to join the west London club because he has “unfinished business with the Premier League”.

Auabmeyang told ChelseaFC.com: “I’m really happy. It’s an honour to be part of this team and I can’t wait to start.

“I have some unfinished business with the Premier League so it’s good to be back and really exciting.”

The striker made 128 appearances in the league for Arsenal scoring 68 times.

He and the Gunners failed to ever finish higher than 5th during his four years in England, so it’s clear to see why he wants another shot in the Prem.

Auba also links up again with his former Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel.

The 33-year-old netted a stunning 79 goals in 95 appearances whilst also registering 17 assists when he last worked with the German coach.
