Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang dyes his hair red and white for Arsenal FA Cup victory party
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may have given another indication that he will extend his stay at Emirates by holding a FA Cup victory party in Italy on Monday.
The striker has less than a year remaining on his contract with the Gunners and Arsenal are keen for their top scorer to extend his deal.
The 31-year-old remained tight-lipped when asked about his future after the Gunners defeated the Blues in the FA Cup final at Wembley on August 1.
But reports have claimed that the Gunners are increasingly confident that Aubameyang will endorse a new contract after being offered a significant rise on his current deal, plus assurances that the team will be strengthened under Mikel Arteta’s guidance.
And Aubameyang gave Arsenal fans even more hope after he featured in his brother’s Instagram live video on Monday evening.
Aubameyang said that he was holding a family party in Italy to celebrate Arsenal’s FA Cup win this season, and the striker fully got into the spirit of the occasion as he dyed his hair red and white.
The house was full of red and white balloons, as well as huge ‘PEA 14’ foil balloons.
Aubameyang was also wearing Arsenal’s new home jersey with his own name and number on the back. His brother and the children attending the party were also wearing the same shirt.
Arsenal fans are convinced that Aubameyang’s latest appearance on Instagram suggests he will commit his future to Arsenal fans.

Arteta, meanwhile, has already made it clear that he is eager for the striker to remain with them.
‘He knows what I think about him, I want to build a squad around him,’ said the Arsenal manager.
‘I want him to stay, it’s about getting the deal done.’
