Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has told owner Todd Boehly he wants Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Chelsea start their season against Everton in Saturday's late kick-off, and have seen a number of new stars come through the door at Stamford Bridge.

But these are still not enough for Tuchel, who has reportedly described his squad as average.

According to Sky Deutschland's Florian Plettenberg, the German coach wants to add Aubameyang to his squad next, having previously worked with him while at Borussia Dortmund.

However, Barcelona want to keep the former Arsenal man as a top back up to Lewandowski, with them preferring Memphis Depay to leave instead.

Aubameyang joined the club on a free transfer in January, scoring 13 times in 23 games.
