Former Arsenal player, Paul Merson has claimed that Chelsea striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is ‘done’ at Stamford Bridge.

Merson believes Aubameyang will leave Chelsea in the near future.

“Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was taken off after coming on as a substitute in the first game against Man City, and I think he’ll now be moved on. I think they will cut their ties with him,” Merson told Sky Sports.

“As soon as you are sub-subbing a 30-something player, I think that’s probably the end. Maybe you can get away with it with a younger player, but in football, it is one of those unwritten rules. It’s a don’t-do.

“But [Graham] Potter did it with him at 33, and for me, I think he is done. It is an example of why recruitment is such a big problem for Chelsea,” he said.

Aubameyang joined Chelsea from Barcelona last summer.
