    PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG could find himself on his way out of Chelsea just months after signing for the Blues from Barcelona.

    The 33-year-old has been linked with a transfer, while Paul Merson has claimed Aubameyang is “done” at Stamford Bridge.

    Chelsea are desperate for goals and have today confirmed the signing of Joao Felix on loan from Atletico Madrid.

    Aubameyang has netted just once in the Premier League this season and has fallen out of favour in recent games.

    The former Arsenal man is now set to be even lower in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

    And Atletico, now in need of a forward, have enquired about Aubameyang’s services.

    That’s according to the Evening Standard, who say Aubameyang’s name was mentioned during negotiations for Felix.

    However, the striker has not been made available for a transfer or loan move as of yet.

    He is also unable to play for a third European club this season having already featured for Barcelona and Chelsea.

    Nevertheless, Merson still reckons Aubameyang’s Chelsea career is as good as over.

    Especially after Aubameyang was subbed off having come on for Raheem Sterling early in last week’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester City.

    Merson wrote in his Sky Sports column: “Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was taken off after coming on as a substitute in the first game against Man City and I think he will now be moved on.

    “I think they will cut their ties with him.

    “As soon as you are sub-subbing a 30-something player, I think that is probably the end.

    “Maybe you can get away with it with a younger player, but in football it’s one of those unwritten rules. It’s a don’t-do.

    “But Potter did it with him at 33 and, for me, I think he’s done.”
