The Blues decided to register other players and left the Gabon hitman off the list

Chelsea attacker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang could be on the list of possible departures in the summer transfer window after being left out of the Blues' Champions League squad to make room for new signings Mudryk, João Félix and Badiashile.

According to the Telegraph, Auba is "shocked and disappointed" with his situation at Chelsea after learning that he will not be included in the squad available to Potter in Europe's top club competition.

According to the media, the Gabonese feels he is basically on the transfer list and is likely to leave the London club at the end of the season.

Aubameyang is going through a difficult time in his playing career at Stamford Bridge, and there is talk of 'bad luck'. "Pierre has done nothing wrong, there is no problem," said the club's manager Graham Potter.

After winning the FA Cup at the start of Arteta's winning project at the helm of the Gunners, the London club decided to break his contract with Auba, one of their star players, following internal behavioural problems at the club. The club's eighth all-time leading scorer (297 appearances, 92 goals) left through the back door and arrived at Barça, in a dream move that turned out to be brief and intense. 

With 13 goals in 23 appearances, he was set back by the arrival of Robert Lewandowski and the club's need to free up wages.

In the end, despite the Gabon international being liked by Xavi, the attacker headed to Stamford Bridge in exchange for 12 million euros. After the departure of coach Thomas Tuchel and with the arrival of Potter, Auba has not reached 1,000 minutes so far this season (782′) and has only scored three goals.

"It's an unfortunate situation and Aubameyang will fight for a place for the rest of the season," said the Chelsea boss, who thinks the striker will fight to turn his situation around despite the fact that in the Gabonese's mind he sees himself out of the club.
