 FC Barcelona could take a very hard and unexpected blow if the latest market rumour materializes: Chelsea FC is coming for Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabon striker arrived at the Blaugrana club just six months ago from Arsenal, and now could be on his way back to the Premier League. The rumour came out of nowhere, and could prove a challenge for Barça who, despite having Robert Lewandowski now, still consider the Gabonese a strong option.
