Aubameyang to stay at Arsenal

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is on the verge of agreeing a new contract to stay at Arsenal until 2023.

The future of the 31-year old club captain, who is out of contract at the end of next season, has been the subject of intense speculation for months, with the Gabonese striker unwilling to commit to a new deal due to uncertainty about the ambition of the club, and also the financial impact of the continuing Covid-19 pandemic.

However, having now secured European football after their FA Cup win – thanks in no small part to Aubameyang’s own contribution with a brace in the semi-final against Manchester City and again in the final with Chelsea = the Gunners have convinced the forward to commit his future to the club.

His new contract is worth a reported £250,000 a week and will include substantial bonuses on top If certain targets are hit. Given the potential cost of replacing him, that is actually money well spent.
