Through the summer there was relentless speculation that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would depart the Emirates for Old Trafford, well, Auba stayed put in North London and has reassured the Arsenal fans with his latest comments.
Speaking to Sky Sports as cited by the Mirror, the Gabon international expressed how happy he is with Arsenal and what he wants to see happen over the next couple of years.
“I feel that we can change something in this club and we will try. Now it’s time to win trophies,” Aubameyang said.
“I’m sure we can do it and I am honestly happy to be here.
“I feel very good. For the next few years we want to play at a high level and win trophies. That’s what we are talking about.”
All the right words, obviously, things can change, especially if Arsenal misses out on a top-four spot and the 30-year-old has yet to sign a contract extension but it is clear he is happy where he is right now and who can blame him.
Auba is guaranteed a start, he is surrounded by top-quality talent in Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe and he can see that the club is going in the right direction and you have to think he will be given a decent pay rise once the contract extension has been agreed.
Also, United are hardly the attraction they once were, they have no more chance of making the top-four than Arsenal and the atmosphere at Old Trafford is not exactly harmonious.
The bottom line is that Aubameyang is happy and ambitious at Arsenal and will not be going anywhere anytime soon.
