There may be two more Chelsea players headed for transfers to Saudi Arabia.
Hakim Ziyech and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Chelsea may be the next players to leave the team in trades to Saudi Arabian teams, according to reports.
Large-name players like Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, and Mateo Kovacic—who secured transfers to Premier League rivals Manchester United, Arsenal, and Manchester City, respectively—were among the many players the Blues sold this summer.
Ziyech and Aubameyang may follow Chelsea, which has previously been successful in selling players like Edouard Mendy and Kalidou Koulibaly to Saudi Pro League teams, according to the Telegraph.
According to the source, despite its prior setbacks, Ziyech’s move to Al Nassr may still proceed, and Aubameyang may team up with Steven Gerrard at Al Ettifaq.
Chelsea’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Since Ziyech and Aubameyang have both struggled to have any type of effect in the previous year or so, Chelsea supporters will undoubtedly be hoping that Mauricio Pochettino can continue to pare down this group.
Pochettino has a plethora of young, gifted players at his disposal, so moving elderly and underperforming guys like this certainly won’t hurt this team too much.
