And Barca are keen on bringing Aubameyang BACK to the club already.

However, the La Liga side fear they are legally unable to re-sign him, according to the Telegraph.

They are said to be looking into whether they are legally allowed to pursue a move for the out of favour striker.

Fifa rules say Aubameyang can only play for Chelsea or Barcelona this season.

But four years ago Dani Ceballos tried to move back to Real Betis on loan from Real Madrid in January, having only swapped Betis for the Bernebeu a matter of months previously.

However, Article 126.5 of the Spanish FA’s rulebook says players who have had their licence cancelled can’t get a new one of the same club in the same season.

Aubameyang played once for Barca this season before joining Chelsea.

So the club are fearful he legally won’t be able to play for them again this campaign.

Aubameyang has failed to impress since joining Chelsea in £10million deal on a two-year contract.

He has scored just once goal in 10 Premier League games, and has not started a match since November.

Spanish outlet AS say Aubameyang is desperate to return to Barcelona no matter the cost.
