After joining last year, he made just 15 Premier League appearances for the Blues, scoring one goal.

And now he has agreed on a three-year contract with Marseille, it is said Fabrizio Romano.

Chelsea are interested in a sale and that means agreeing a transfer fee will reportedly be relatively easy.

Arsenal fans have ridiculed the proposed move, calling Marseille a “retirement home” for former Gooners.

Former Arsenal stars Alexis Sanchez and Matteo Guendouzi play for the Ligue Un club, while Nuno Tavares was there on loan last season.

Ex-gooner Sead Kolasinac also spent a year at Marseille before departing this summer.

Commenting on Aubameyang’s deal, one fan said: “Where former Arsenal players retire…”

Another added: “Wow… from Alexis to Aubameyang… Marseille and ready players 🤝”


A third wrote: “Is this Arsenal’s new retirement home?”

And another remarked: “People want Auba for three more years.”
