Another Aubameyang hint emerges, maybe he really does wants to stay put

One big question surrounding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future at Arsenal ahead of the summer transfer window is “Will he or will he not stay?”

Most Arsenal fans are desperate for the club to keep hold of their top goal scorer and very few want to think about how tough life might be in the Premier League without the Gabon striker.

The Gunners have been on a contract-signing spree recently after handing new deals to the likes of Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.

They will now look to turn their attention to securing Aubameyang’s future.

The Gabon striker has hinted that he wants to stay by claiming that the ball is in the club’s court with regards to securing his future (SkySport).

He has continued to give hints about staying and there is yet another one which might signal that he wants to remain at the club.

The club recently released pictures of their training ground attire for next season, and in what might seem to signal his intent, Aubameyang joined in the photoshoot.

The jacket worn by the striker would cost fans £70 (The Sun) and most Arsenal fans would no doubt hope that the image of Auba is a positive sign.

    Honestly I don’t see donning that jacket is a sign that he wants to stay. I believe he want to stay but only if they give him what he demands.

    I have to laugh at all these nod and wink, will Auba stay or go stories. To me it is quite clear that he knows ,at his age,with this global pandemic too, he is not going to get the sort of long contract and wages he desires and thinks he deserves, at a giant club abroad NOR elsewhere in our Prem. That should, by now, be plain to all, as there have been plenty of signs at least for those observant enough, as I am, to see them.

    I have though, no illusions that he will stay out of loyalty but merely because he is wanted here which means something to ALL humans (to be wanted) AND because he will fail to get a comparable offer elsewhere at his age. I expect a two year extension to his current contract at a wage somewhere in between what he wants and what the club has offered. I may be wrong but strongly do NOT think so.

    From another angle , the club know only too well that he is our star player and his guaranteed goals are vital. They also know that his lean build means he is far less likely to lose speed and fitness anytime soon, even at his age. He is popular among the team and has an engaging personality He is hardly ever injured and the club is far more aware of that than some realise. To let him go without a huge transfer fee – which in these times cannot happen – would be football suicide. So taken all round, his staying put is IMO a long odds on bet.

      Agree with Jon and Grandad too and would add that Arsenal are heading in the right direction under Arteta which may well be a positive. We’re no longer a sinking ship

    I like your logic Jon and like you,I think he will stay.

    Give the bloke what he wants and keep him.
    That guy has many more years of football left in him. Even Arteta knows that, and said so.
    Three years extension at 200+ grand is not too much to ask

    Is said he wants 250K A week he is worth that for the imput he puts in lets face it where would we be without his goals.
    Makes sense for all parties as well he could become a Arsenal legend if he stays breaking goal records but more important it give us time to develop our young strikers and he will be a massive imput to them learning as he shows he can do it week in week out
