Thmoas Tuchel may not be reuniting with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang anytime soon.

The Barcelona striker wants a deal for at least two years while Chelsea are only prepared to offer a one season contract.

Aubameyang is 33 and Chelsea are mindful of his age and committing to a long term agreement – broadly in line with their policy on older players.

It is still hoped a compromise will be reached and that the former Arsenal captain will return to the Premier League before next Thursday’s transfer deadline.

Tuchel wants Aubameyang to join him at Stamford Bridge and provide the outlet needed in front of goal as an out-and-out centre forward with bags of experience.

At present Chelsea are relying on the use of so-called “false nines” – using attacking midfielder Kai Havertz or Raheem Sterling in the striker’s usual position.

Aubameyang has a deal until 2025 at Barcelona although there is a chance to re-negotiate at the end of this season.

He played for Tuchel previously at Borussia Dortmund and the pair remain close.

Chelsea and Barcelona are largely in agreement over Aubameyang with a fee of around £25m to be paid – but it now needs the player and the club to sort out terms.
