Arsenal have more control on Aubameyang’s future than previously believed

The Athletic seem to have uncovered a clause in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang‘s Arsenal contract which includes a one-year contract extension.

Gunners fans have been stressing over the future of our star-striker, with growing frustration over our club’s handling of player contracts following the recent scenario in which we saw Alexis Sanchez leave the club to join rivals Manchester United, while the controversial Mesut Ozil landed himself a monster playing deal.

Aubameyang could well be in line for a bumper contract also, although he is rumoured to be asking for £250,000 per week to sign a new deal, £50,000 less than the former German international currently receives.

Arsenal are believed to have paid the price for agreeing such a bumper deal with Ozil, and considering the vast importance for our side that PEA possesses, you couldn’t blame him for wanting such a wage.

The reason why our club has so far refused to trigger this extension, The Athletic claims is because they would prefer to agree a new deal with their key player. The report also claims that they do not wish to be seen as holding their asset against his wishes, although the main reason looks to be that the extension possesses a wage that they are also not keen to pay regardless.

Surely this will mean that our club will use this clause as a back-up option should a new deal not be agreed, while the FA Cup could well aid our chances of signing him down to a new deal, with European football accompanying the trophy.

Do we think Aubameyang will sign a new deal if we win the FA Cup on Saturday?

    It will surely help but he wants a wage lower than Ozil as EPL best striker.

    Mainly some guarranties to be able to compete.

    Means he loves Arsenal but we are not that Arsenal that made him and everyone want to join.

    We cant guarranty a win again cheslea nor a team to compete nor making people dream but feel sorry to see us fall to midtable and so lost.

    If we lose Cup, wont change much but what we can garrqnty to compete next year in EPL or EL…

    We are totally out of control, 3 coach & 3 captain with no EL. Hoping to beat Chelsea to qualify.

    Aaint 7th seat Wolves in EL with City League Cup win?

    What about us if Chelsea beats us or UK teams win EL and CL?

    Anyone can answer this?

    Thanks

    Doesn’t matter what else happens, the only way we can get into EL is if we win the FA cup.

    In no way should the Club again offer to pay astronomical wages to ageing superstars as an incentive to stay beyond their sell-by date.
    We should instead take this opportunity to rebuild the team in the model of the current top 4 teams, which creates more scoring opportunities for other positions. In this regard, is interesting to note that none of the top 4 teams had any contenders for the golden boot.

    I’m pretty sure the club will be able to give Auba what he asks for should the boys win the game against CKSA London. There’ll be enough money for his contract and even for a couple of signings. And God forbid they manage to sell some flops, the things might start looking good entering the new season. BUT, they’ve got to win the final and I’ve got a bad feeling about it. Baku defeat still feels fresh.
