After a long transfer saga over the summer, Chelsea finally managed to get the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang over the line on deadline day, yet he could be set to leave Stamford Bridge after just a few months as interest in the striker increases.

Thomas Tuchel was a huge factor in Aubameyang choosing to sign for Chelsea, having worked under him at Borussia Dortmund. However, the reunion only last a few days, as the German manager was dismissed by Chelsea right after Aubameyang signed a two-year contract, having played just 59 minutes under Tuchel in an abysmal 1-0 loss against Dinamo Zagreb.

The 33-year-old has since shined under new Chelsea manager Graham Potter, scoring two goals in three games, with the English manager fitting Aubameyang perfectly in his evolving system.

Despite this, Aubameyang is already being linked with a move away from the club, as Foot Mercato are reporting that Paris Saint-Germain have made contact with his representatives over a possible move next season.

However, the report adds that a move to the Ligue 1 side would only happen should Chelsea opt to let go of the Gabonese forward. The transfer would see him reunite with another one of his former managers, Christophe Galtier, who he played under at Saint-Etienne, when he first burst onto the scene.

This might seem quite unlikely given the way things have gone so far for him under Potter, as Chelsea seem content to have him at the club for this season and the next, especially with Armando Broja still being bled into the side.

Having such an experienced forward as an option up front is crucial especially when the other forward at the club is still so young.

Aubameyang's time at the club might have had a rocky start due to the managerial situation, but he could be on course to have a memorable season, especially given his resurgence in his half-season at Barcelona in the last term. Yet given the way Barca let him go this summer, it still wouldn't be surprising if he ended up leaving Chelsea even if he registers a good return this season.
