PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG is reportedly a shock target for Chelsea in this window.

But Sky Bet reckon it’s more likely he will STAY at Barcelona for the upcoming season.

They price Barca at 1/4 to keep hold of the former Arsenal captain.

Nou Camp boss Xavi has allegedly poured cold water on Aubameyang departing the club this summer.

According to Sport, the club have no intention of selling him before the window closes.

The same report suggests Aubameyang is looking to remain at the club having worked hard to secure the move there in the first place.

Despite the supposed financial issues at the club, Barcelona have splurged over £130million on Raphinha, Jules Kounde and striker Robert Lewandowski.

Lewandowski is likely to take on the role of lead striker, though Xavi again hinted there would be a role for Aubameyang.

Aubameyang scored 11 goals in 17 La Liga outings having joined halfway through the season last year.

In total for Arsenal and at Barca, it was 20 goals in 38 appearances in all competitions.

With the Frenkie de Jong scenario still to play out, it could be that Barca look to recoup some of that spend somewhere else.

If Aubameyang was caught in that crossfire, a move to Chelsea is priced at 3/1 with Sky Bet.

They have lost Romelu Lukaku already in this window and Timo Werner could well follow suit.

Raheem Sterling has been brought in but a move for an out-and-out number nine is highly likely.

The only other club quoted in the betting is Juventus at 25/1, making it appear likely Aubameyang will either be playing in London or in Barcelona next season.
