Chelsea forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has become the latest high-profile name to be linked with a move to the Saudi Arabia Pro League with two clubs interested.
The Gabonese striker has failed to make an impact since arriving from Barcelona on transfer deadline day last summer and it has been heavily reported that Aubameyang’s preference would be to return to the Catalan giants in the close season.

However with Barcelona seemingly pushing ahead to fund a lucrative deal to bring former captain Lionel Messi back to the Nou Camp, it is more than likely Barca boss Xavi Hernandez will not come back in for Aubameyang, who at 33, realistically only has two years maximum at the top level.
And according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Aubameyang is believed to be considering two separate offers from Al Ahli and Al Shabab to join Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema in Saudi Arabia after turning down a move from MLS side LAFC back in February in his pursuit to continue playing in Europe.
