Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang All Geared Up for Marseille Move

According to renowned to reports, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the forward for Chelsea, is on the verge of completing a move to Ligue 1 club Olympique Marseille. The French club had been eager to bolster their attacking options during the current transfer window, and Aubameyang was among their targeted players. After prolonged negotiations with Chelsea, an agreement has been reached, and the 34-year-old is poised to undergo his medical examination.

The transfer is seen as a win-win situation for both clubs. Aubameyang was not part of Mauricio Pochettino’s future plans at Chelsea and was earning a considerable wage, so his departure will help the London club with financial considerations. Meanwhile, Olympique Marseille secures the services of a proven striker with a successful track record across various European clubs.

Aubameyang’s rise to prominence began during his time at Borussia Dortmund before moving to Arsenal, where he made 163 appearances and contributed to 113 goals. His subsequent stint at Barcelona saw him play 24 matches and contribute to 14 goals. However, his time at Chelsea did not go as planned, leading to his move to Olympique Marseille.

While Aubameyang’s form may have dipped recently, the former Arsenal star remains hopeful of turning things around at his new club. With the medical examination scheduled for tomorrow, an official announcement regarding the transfer is expected to follow shortly.
