Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel: “I will always have a close bond with Aubameyang.”

According to reports, the Blues want to bring Aubameyang from Barcelona before the transfer window closes on September 1.

Aubameyang left Arsenal in February due to a conduct issue, and Tuchel claimed they remained close even after they left Germany.

I had no problems with him, Tuchel remarked on Friday.

Tuchel was pleased to talk about his time working with Aubameyang at Dortmund, where the Gabon forward spent five years prior to joining Arsenal in 2018. However, he declined to discuss the possibility of recruiting Aubameyang this summer.

Before his team’s Sunday match against Tottenham at home, Tuchel continued, “I enjoyed working with Auba while I was at Dortmund. This is completely unrelated to everything that is going on right now.”

“Aubameyang is one of those players who stays with you because you were so closely connected.

“This strong friendship was always present from the beginning. In a manner, they continue to be your players.”

Aubameyang joined Arsenal in January 2018 for £56 million, however he left on a free transfer after losing his captaincy due to disciplinary reasons.

Tuchel continued, “There was never a problem in Dortmund.

Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, expressed the hope that Aubameyang would be welcomed back to London with open arms.

Before Arsenal’s Saturday (15:00) home game against Leicester, Arteta remarked, “What’s been done has been to defend the club and put it in the greatest position.”

“Auba is a fantastic athlete. He gave us so much. If he returns, I hope he receives a warm welcome because he merits it.”

After joining Barcelona, Aubameyang, 33, scored 11 goals in 17 La Liga contests the previous season.

This summer, Chelsea added several key players, including English winger Raheem Sterling from Manchester City, defender Marc Cucurella from Brighton, and Senegal defender Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli.
