Aubameyang tried to force a transfer move to Chelsea in January


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang attempted to force a transfer move to Chelsea in the January window – but a move failed to materialize due to his huge wage demands.

Aubameyang will play against Chelsea on Saturday when Arsenal take on the blues in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

But the Arsenal forward was interested in swapping his red jersey for a blue one in January.

According to the Daily Mail, contact was made on behalf of the former Borussia Dortmund striker as he was keen on signing for Chelsea. But his excessive wage demands prevented the possible move to Frank Lampard’s side.

According to reports, he would have been the highest-paid player ever in the club’s history, if they had accepted his demands.

Aubameyang’s current deal expires at the end of next campaign – and his future at the club is still not certain.

Should Arsenal fail to get a victory over Chelsea today, the gunners will not be involved in European football next campaign.

And failure to win the FA Cup could see Aubameyang – who has already scored 27 goals this season – leave the club.

Despite already signing Timo Werner from Liepzig, it is believed Lampard is keen on signing another striker but Aubameyang would have to lower his demands for a move to happen.

Barcelona and AC Milan are interested in the Arsenal forward as well and will be watching Saturday’s final closely to see if Arteta’s side secure qualification to the Europa League.
