Arsenal have been locked in negotiations with the entourage of Gabonese hitman, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang over a new contract, with the player now in the final year of his contract.
Since his arrival in the winter of 2018, Aubameyang has been an inspiration in the team, with his relentless goal scoring prowess proving invaluable at the club and tying him down to a new contract will be absolutely crucial to Mikel Arteta’s plans going forward.
Negotiations over a new contract have been on for a while now with the player reportedly reluctant to commit initially but it is reported that a breakthrough has been reached.
Aubameyang has agreed a new three-year contract worth £250,000-a-week with the club expected to make a long-awaited confirmation announcement in the next few days and could even be before their opening Premier League fixture against Fulham on Saturday, according to ESPN.
The contract extension may very well be Arsenal’s biggest summer signing amidst all completed and rumoured transfers.
