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

“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.”
