‘Arsenal fans won’t be happy if Chelsea sign Barcelona striker’ - Parlour

The former Borussia Dortmund striker could move to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Retired England footballer Ray Parlor has said Arsenal fans would not be happy if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made the move to Chelsea. The Barcelona star has plenty to look forward to with a return to London and Parlor believes fans of the Blues and Gunners, who are close rivals, will not be happy when the former Gabon captain joins Stamford Bridge. "I don't think Arsenal fans will be happy. They [Chelsea] are Arsenal's rivals and they will compete with them and try to finish in the top four this season," Parlor told talkSport.

The former Borussia Dortmund forward has been linked with a summer move to Stamford Bridge Retired English football Ray Parlour has claimed Arsenal fans will not be happy if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang signs for Chelsea. The Barcelona star has been massively linked with a move back to London and Parlour believes given thatthe Blues and the Gunners are close rivals, the fans of the latter would not be happy if the former Gabon captain moves to Stamford Bridge. "I don’t think Arsenal fans will be happy. They [Chelsea] are Arsenal rivals and they are going to be competing with and try to get into the top four this season," Parlour told talkSport. The retired Arsenal midfielder also explained why Chelsea would want to sign Aubameyang. "But Aubameyang was kicked out and he might still want to play in the Premier League," he continued. "It's not a problem for Chelsea! [Timo] Werner is back in Leipzig so they are missing goals and Aubameyang will definitely score. "Before he signed a new contract with Arsenal he was great and won the FA Cup for Arsenal alone so it will be a good signing. "Even if you get him for a season, he can come back and try to prove people wrong. He'll try."

"Even if you get him for a season, he can come back and try to prove people wrong. That's what he's trying to do." Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel recently hinted that signing the former Borussia Dortmund striker could be considered. "I think we can keep up with this group, but it's one thing to compete once a week and quite another to compete 60 times a year and three times a week," said Tuchel. 

“You have to have players fighting for their place and challenging their minutes. It's not just about tactics and team spirit, but also about depth and challenge." "As long as the transfer window is open, there are always opportunities. The focus is on what we have, not what we could have." Responding to Aubameyang's potential move to Chelsea, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta insisted the Gabonese star deserved the respect of Gunners fans. "I hope he will be well received by the Arsenal fans at Emirates Stadium because I think he deserves it," said Arteta. "There are moments in life, there are moments in your career and sometimes each person's journey or goal is different from clubs - and that has to be respected."
