Arsenal close in on new Aubameyang deal after making him a promise

The Telegraph claims that Arsenal is closing in on a new deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabon striker has been the Gunners most trusted goal-getter since he joined the club in 2018.

The club has been sweating over handing him a new deal for some time now as he entered the final year of his current deal with them.

He topped the scoring charts in the Premier League for the 2018/2019 season and only missed out on another Golden Boot in the just-concluded campaign by a goal.

The club has had to deal with him being linked with moves to other top sides like Barcelona and Inter Milan, but they remained confident that he will sign a new deal and that seems to have paid off.

The report claims that he has verbally committed to signing a new three-year deal with them that will see him earn £250,000 -per-week and other bonuses.

It adds that the striker held talks with the club and they promised him that they have the money to back Mikel Arteta in the next transfer window and he expects them to keep their promises.

Arteta will be happy to keep the striker who single-handedly won his team the FA Cup this season after scoring the goals in the semifinal and final.

    yes he scored 2 goals in the final but stating he won the game single handedly is drastic over statement, was he the only player on the pitch?

    Good for all partys

  3. prince AA says:

    He was wrong to say that because, he is not the only player on the pitch

  4. Funsho says:

    Without his goals what would the scoreline had been?? He won us the FA simple

    1. Wills says:

      Without tierny pass or pepe assist or celballos hardwork in d middle, he would not have scored simple….saying he single handedly won us d match is a bit far fetched dont you think

    So the cost of his new contract is being paid for by the selling of AMN.

    Age is just a number. He’s our most productive player; tho one could make a case for GK Martinez or Leno. Others have contributed to his goals, but without his finishing where would we be?
    Auba is a key piece we MUST keep, along with Arteta as manager. I would also add Tierney; frankly I think he’s been even better than originally advertised.
    I’d love to see the midfield sorted with a DM and a productive B2B. Add a solid CB ( maybe Gabriel) and with Willan we look good to go.
    On a side note, does anyone know if Marlang Sarr could play as a DM? I know he’s played as a CB and LB, but with his pace, passing, and decent ball control is he worth a shot on a free? He could still be a CB if DM doesn’t work especially with Luiz and Sokratis contracts ending in a year.
    Just food for thought
