Todd Boehly in talks with Camp Nou
Todd Boehly who is the new owner of Chelsea was earlier in talks with the chiefs of Barcelona this summer regarding the potential transfers. However, the Premier League giants have not yet made an official offer for Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. Though Tuchel has a close relationship with the former Arsenal captain from their time since Dortmund and based on that, Chelsea could use that advantage they have.
