Chelsea and Barcelona have reportedly agreed a deal for a player exchange this transfer deadline day.
Things are going to really heat up today at Chelsea, and we are expecting one or two more big deals to happen, maybe more.
Chelsea have been chasing Pierre Emerick Aubameyang for many weeks now as they try to provide Thomas Tuchel with the striker that he wants to sign. But Barcelona have been holding firm on their valuation of him, and no deal had been agreed. That is until now anyway, at least according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
He claims that Chelsea and Barcelona have reached an agreement to exchange Aubameyang and Marcos Alonso.
There aren’t a lot of details about the deal on the report and we will need to wait for further sources to clarify if it is true or not. But it is one of those deals that always has had a sense that it would go through.
