Gunners boss Mikel Arteta opens up and believes 70-goal hitman will be signing up with Arsenal
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta thinks Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will end all speculation and sign a contract extension at Arsenal.
Prolific Gabonese frontman Aubameyang has entered the final 12 months of his current terms at Emirates Stadium, but He is yet to commit to an extension, despite offering no indication that he is looking elsewhere.
It is believed the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid interested in the man, who has now netted an impressive 70 goals in just 109 appearances for the club he joined just a few seasons ago.
But despite all the reports which have suggested that Aubameyang has played his last game as an Arsenal player, Speaking after Aubameyang’s double guided Arsenal to a 2-1 victory over Chelsea in the FA Cup final, Arteta told the BBC: “Aubameyang knows what I think about him, I want to build the squad around him.
“I think he wants to stay; it’s about getting the deal done. Moments like today will help him to realise and believe we are on the right path and that he is a big part of it.
“He’s loved by everybody at the club so hopefully he can continue with him. I think he will continue.”
Look, everyone at Arsenal does want Auba to sign a new contract and stay at the club, that is for sure, But the contract that Arsenal have reportedly placed on the table is a good one, a big one, and he still hasnt signed the thing.
Yes winning that FA Cup helps matters, but at the end of the day, Auba wants to be challenging for that Premier League title, playing in the Champions League, and will Arsenal do that in the next few seasons? probably not.
It will be interesting to see if he leaves the club.
