Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang signing to Chelsea shows that Thomas Tuchel’s final act as Chelsea manager may turn out to be one of his wisest choices.
After Romelu Lukaku’s failed comeback, the now-retired German coach was convinced that Aubameyang should be the guy to lead the charge. There were no worries about the reported “character difficulties” that ended his time as a neighbour at Arsenal because they had previously worked together at Borussia Dortmund.

However, Tuchel was fired as Chelsea manager and then replaced by Graham Potter only a few days after he was reunited with the Gabon international. Given that Potter would probably want his own man, it may be understandable that some doubts were raised about Pierre-Emerick

Aubameyang’s long-term future at the Bridge. Nevertheless, the 33-year-old is establishing himself as a prominent figure in the new period in the early weeks of his term, whether out of need or not. The striker struck on Wednesday when the Blues defeated AC Milan in the Champions League, giving him two goals in as many games.
The former Barcelona ace, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang didn’t exactly put up his most stunning all-around performance, but he delivered when his boss needed him to. Additionally, the goal was scored while many Chelsea players were focused on a player on the opposing side.
The club has had Rafael Leao on its radar for a while, and talent scouts there are still quite keen on signing the 23-year-old. He failed to score during the 3-0 loss, but he did display some of the skills that have the Rossoneri valuing him at more than £100 million.
And the potential direct rival for him was appropriately impressed by the Portuguese forward’s performance. When it comes to making a final choice regarding a player Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang believes, can make a difference at any point.
Potter also made little progress in putting a stop to transfer rumours. Even while the new Chelsea manager is reluctant to discuss opponents’ players in general, he made an exception for the Milan speedster. Before Wednesday night, Potter talked about Leao. He said he is extremely astonished in a good sense by what Leao has done and how he makes a difference in attack with goals and assists.
Potter said that he is not sure what Leao will turn out to be, but he is playing excellently for Milan right now. He also said that Leao possesses the abilities and talent necessary to perform admirably in the Premier League as well.
Even while there isn’t necessarily a rush to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Leao would, in his opinion at least, make a wise choice if given the opportunity.
