Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is attracting interest from Barcelona, and AC Milan after being left out of ’s squad.

The striker’s future at Stamford Bridge has been plunged into doubt after opted to leave the Gabon skipper out of his side’s 25-man squad for the knockout stages.

Aubameyang joined the club last summer from Barcelona and signed a two-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months.

But Potter has mostly leaned on Kai Havertz this season, while the club moved to sign Joao Felix on loan last month.

The Blues have, of course, spent big elsewhere to secure the likes of Enzo Fernandez and Mykhailo Mudryk.

They therefore need to trim the squad and Potter has a job on his hands to keep such a large squad happy.

And the Daily Mail say there’s already been significant interest in Aubameyang, with Barcelona, Atletico and AC Milan keen to sign the former Arsenal ace.

Aubemayang joined Chelsea from Barcelona, while he spent time at Milan earlier in his career.

It’s believed the interested parties would prefer a loan deal, with Chelsea covering much of Aubameyang’s wages.

Securing a striker in the summer is expected to be a priority for Potter, though Romelu Lukaku still remains on the wage bill.
