No doubt, Player like Raheem Sterling has been added to Chelsea’s squad in terms of attacking form in the club, replacing Romelu Lukaku, who has returned back to Inter Milan on a loan deal.
Although, there is uncertainty over the futures of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic, if they still remain with the club or not as the transfer summer is still on.
With this, Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has been exploring a move for the former Arsenal striker, who was on a suddenly transfer move in January, and has since moved to Barcelona.

According to him,
“He does not get younger, that’s the problem”, Tuchel told the media in 2021.
‘Back in the days at Dortmund, it was a pure pleasure to have him in the squad. Auba was a fantastic striker, a fantastic finisher on the pitch. But more than that, he was a fantastic worker off the pitch. I think he did not miss one single training in two years’, the Chelsea boss recalled.
“Maybe he arrived five minutes late on the training ground, that can happen with him! But if he does this, he is in a hurry, he excuses, he feels sorry, he has still a smile on his face.
“It was a pleasure to work with him, always a smile on his face, very, very honest guy.
“A bit of a crazy guy, but this is nice crazy. We still are in touch from time to time and exchange messages when some of us has a big win. In some way, he will still always be my player and feels like he will always be my player, so you want him to succeed and have a good time wherever they are.”
