Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's potential move from Barcelona to Chelsea will make his choice of tattoos rather awkward, if it goes through.
It's only a few months ago that Aubameyang left Arsenal to join Barcelona, after a falling out that has been brilliantly captured by All or Nothing.
The forward was so desperate to get out of north London by the end of his spell that he disappeared to Barcelona without permission, before eventually being released by the Gunners.
He scored 11 goals in 17 La Liga appearances at the end of the last campaign but he could be set for a quick return to England this summer.
Barca have signed Robert Lewandowski this summer and have a plethora of options in attack now, and Chelsea are interested in bringing the Gabonese striker back to England.
However, that could make things very awkward for the 33-year-old, who has a tattoo of himself in an Arsenal shirt, alongside his two children.
It’s fucking nuts to me that Aubameyang is about to sign for Chelsea with a tattoo of him at Arsenal ….— daniilricciardo (@philiam17) August 19, 2022

Aubameyang will look good in that Chelsea jersey coupled with his big Arsenal tattoo 🐍🤡— Seán Kelly (@Sean___Kelly) August 18, 2022
Aubameyang, potentially moving to Chelsea from Barcelona, after Arsenal mutually terminated the ex-captian’s contract. With an Arsenal-inspired tattoo on his arm. This is normal. https://t.co/vnD5h04uSF— Chatting Shite (@chattingshite) August 19, 2022
Whilst there's no Arsenal badge, or other insignia, on the tattoo, there's no doubt that the body art depicts him in a Gunners' shirt.
The former Borussia Dortmund player's most successful day in an Arsenal shirts also came against the Blues, in the FA Cup final.
In the behind closed doors final at Wembley in 2020, the striker scored twice, in a virtuoso display, only ruined by his trophy lift, that helped earn his only piece of silverware whilst at the Emirates Stadium.
Things may have soured on his feelings towards the club though, and especially manager Mikel Arteta, despite his tattoo, considering how he left.
He even referenced his former boss when signing for Barcelona, saying, "For my part, I never wanted to do anything wrong. My problem was only with Arteta. I can't say much more, I wasn't happy," after being announced for the Spanish giants.
Maybe once he's moved back to London, Aubameyang could be seen on an episode of Tattoo Fixers in the future, we'd definitely watch.
