Chelsea: Spurs Striker Belittles Arsenal and Boehly- Auba’s Move Proves to be a Mistake

Spurs striker Richarlison has revealed to the media that Chelsea and Arsenal had poached for him last summer, but it was Tottenham who made the actual bid. According to him, Chelsea and Arsenal were never close to signing him because he had already set his mind on joining Tottenham who he believes stand a good chance at winning silverware this season. He also said that Spurs will finish above the two Londoners this season because Conte is the greatest manager.

“I heard that Chelsea were in negotiations with Everton representatives last summer. I was free at that time to join any team. Arsenal also made an enquiry but never followed through with completing the deal. Tottenham on the other hand came and cashed in on me. You know what I mean. And for that I think that this season Spurs are a level stronger than the last and we will finish higher than Chelsea and Arsenal.”

Chelsea instead signed Pierre Emerick Aubameyang while Arsenal signed Gabriel Jesus for the #9 role this season. Gabriel Jesus has been fairing on well at Arsenal as he has injected a new sense of confidence within the squad. As for Aubameyang, he is yet to get off the mark but Graham Potter has assured the fans that his potential will soon explode. Richarlison on the other hand is loving life at Spurs but is yet to fully perch himself in the starting eleven.

Aubameyang has not had the same effect as Richarlison this season…

As pointed out earlier, Aubameyang’s signing this season has been inconsequential for Chelsea and for that reason the Blues lurk below the top 6 places in the league. The Gabonese striker is still readjusting to the new system at Chelsea, but fans are impatient and want to see instant impact in the next few matches which are must wins for the club. They want to see the Aubameyang that graced Arsenal colours two years ago.

I think that Chelsea’s decision to sign Aubameyang last summer was a very big mistake. His transfer was coaxed by Tuchel- because the two shared a connection in the past, and little regard was paid to Aubameyang’s nose diving form when he was at Barcelona. And because of that, I think that Chelsea will rank lowest compared to the big six this season.
