With the future Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang still uncertain following a summer of rumours linking him with a move away from the Bundesliga, a number of clubs have been keeping a close eye on his progress – with Chelsea the latest club said to be interested.
However, pundit and former MLS footballer Alejandro Moreno has claimed that Antonio Conte should stay well away from the 28-year-old, as even his former boss and current Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp isn’t even interested in securing the forward.
With Chelsea offloading Diego Costa and failing to re-sign Romelu Lukaku, Aubameyang has been linked with the English champions alongside the likes of Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata and Torino’s Andrea Belotti.
However, a lack of interest in the Dortmund striker since his collapsed move to Paris Saint-Germain should act as a warning sign and a deterrent for the Blues according to Moreno.
He told ESPN FC (via the Express): “There is a reason as to why so many people have walked away from Aubameyang.
He’s the best finisher out of the lot of them we’ve been linked with, not sure why there’s no hype around him!

“He seemed to be the hot property and somehow he kind of fell off the radar, PSG doesn’t want him anymore, and this team doesn’t want him anymore.
“Even a guy like Jurgen Klopp who had him at Borussia Dortmund, there is no conversation of that going on.
“So if people who have worked with him are saying ‘we don’t want him’ there’s got to be something else that we are not privy too, so I don’t want him either,” he added.
The lack of interest in Aubameyang is baffling as his stats speak for themselves as the striker scored 40 goals in 45 appearances for Dortmund last season.
