The Mirror reports that Barcelona wants to re-sign Pierre-Emerick Auabameyang from Chelsea.
According to the story, the veteran Gabonese forward could be an understudy to Robert Lewandowski.
“Following his £10.5 million transfer to Stamford Bridge last September, Aubameyang has failed to make an impact upon returning to the Premier League and now reportedly realises that he made a grave mistake in signing for Chelsea.

“The Gabonese striker had only spent eight months with Barca, enjoying a run of 13 goals in 24 games. He became a key player for manager Xavi Hernandez.
“That’s in stark contrast to how he’s fared under Graham Potter, scoring just three goals in 17 games.
And he has been left out of the Blues’ Champions League squad in favour of newer additions in west London.
“With Potter and co opening to sanctioning his departure, Aubameyang is dreaming of playing for Barcelona again – and fresh suggestions from Catalunya mean that it could become a reality.
“Barca are keen on recruiting a back-up striker who can chip in with goals and offer Robert Lewandowski occasional rests. Lewandowski has largely been prolific since joining from Bayern Munich last summer but he’s only managed two goals in his last 10 games for club and country.”
Bayern want Mount
Thomas Tuchel hopes to bring Mason Mount to Bayern Munich, according to the Sun.
The Chelsea midfielder is out of contract next season, and he could move on a free transfer next year.
“Tuchel is back in work with German giants Bayern Munich after being sacked by the Blues in September.

“He has only been in the job for a few days and wants at least three or four matches to properly size up his new squad before drawing up transfer plans for the summer.
“But Tuchel is a huge fan of the unsettled Mount who is in a contract standoff at Stamford Bridge.
“And there are already early suggestions the six-time European champions will approach Chelsea about striking a deal in the summer.
“There has been no contact whatsoever between the two parties so far.”
