The next step in Chelsea’s attacking transformation has been revealed and will be intriguing for Joao Felix. There is also growing speculation that Unai Emery could sign one of his former Arsenal players at Aston Villa.
Aubameyang linked to La Liga return
Chelsea could receive an offer for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Atletico Madrid in separate talks with the team bringing Joao Felix to the Premier League.
Felix is on the verge of becoming Chelsea’s fourth signing in the January transfer window. It was agreed that he would spend six months on loan at Stamford Bridge.
The attackers have fallen out of favor with Atlético Madrid and are looking to make a fresh start in the Premier League. He follows Benoît Badiacil, David Datro Fofana and Andrei Santos, who will join Chelsea this winter.
Felix headed to London on Tuesday ahead of a medical examination and the signing of the contract. Loan arrival only, Chelsea pay a lot to get his services.
Having scored the fewest goals in the first half of the Premier League so far this season, it’s clear they need to invest up front.
Felix’s arrival should address some of their problems.
The former Arsenal striker joined Chelsea in the summer and was reunited with former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel.
Since then, Aubameyang has been at a loss. He has started just four of his nine Premier League appearances this season. He last came back in November. That said, he managed to start every match in his stage group of the Champions League.
Atlético among Aubameyang’s suitors
But Graham Potter doesn’t seem to be as big of an Aubameyang fan as Tuchel. The future of the Gabon national team is therefore in doubt.
by daily mail, Aubameyang is currently attracting interest from La Liga clubs. He still has fans in Spain after scoring 13 goals in his 24 games for Barcelona last season.
Coincidentally, one of them is Atlético Madrid, the same club Chelsea signed Felix to.
The negotiations would be separate from the deals already discussed and agreed for the Portuguese attackers. But Atlético are interested in Aubameyang if the opportunity presents itself.
They may prefer to move in the summer, but that might suit Chelsea anyway. Only.
His contract at Stamford Bridge will run until 2024. However, if Chelsea can sign another centre-forward in January or summer, they may allow him to leave.
ASTON VILLA WAS ABLE TO BID ON GUENDOUZI

After taking on the job of Aston Villa late last year, Emery is now figuring out how to reshape the team in his image.
They were recently linked with the transfer of Arsenal midfielder Mohammed Erneny.
An unnamed Premier League team is keen to bring Guendouzi back to English football from Marseille, according to French reports.
and according to L’Equipea belief is growing in Marseille that the suitor in question may be Emery’s Villa.
Guendouzi’s contact with anyone who wants him allegedly began during the World Cup, when he was representing runners-up France. Now he may have specific suggestions to consider.
Villains are looking to sack former Marseille player Morgan Sanson this month. Emery, meanwhile, wants to reinvest in midfield and could pursue a reunion with Guendouzi.
The 23-year-old has made 66 appearances for Emery at the Emirates Stadium.
Guendouzi has a contract with Marseille until 2025, but his departure could come sooner. And the 23-year-old could end up getting his second chance in the Premier League.
