Chelsea will allow Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to join Marseille as a free agent.
Chelsea have decided not to set a fee for Aubameyang, who will sign a three-year contract with Marseille.
The former Arsenal striker has struggled since joining from Barcelona last summer, and his exit was inescapable when manager Mauricio Pochettino excluded him from the club’s pre-season tour of the United States.
Chelsea is also considering making a bid for Montpellier striker Elye Wahi, who scored 19 goals in Ligue 1 last season. Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in Wahi.
