One thing that every Arsenal fan wants to hear is the news that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed a new deal with the Gunners.
The club captain has entered the final year of his current deal at the Emirates and he has been negotiating a new deal with the Gunners.
He has been their most important player for a long time now and he proved that again when he helped the Gunners win the Community Shield against Liverpool.
He had scored both goals that helped them win the FA Cup at the end of last season and started this season by scoring the opening goal in the 1-1 draw against the Reds.
He then scored the winning penalty that gave Mikel Arteta’s side two trophies in less than a month.
His importance to the team isn’t lost on the club and they are working hard to get him on a new deal.
He was, however, asked about progress in talks about a new deal and he still won’t offer too much of hope to fans.
He said as quoted by Sun Sport: “We’re going to see these coming days. Today we get the trophy and that’s it.
“We are improving. There is still work to do but I’m really happy and it’s an exciting time to be an Arsenal player.”
It is what it is. Let everything play out and make your judgement on Arsenal transfers in October simple
I believe he wants to sign a new contract but I don’t think he will until the club make some key signings first. He wants to see them deliver on strengthening.
If Auba is making sure ownership puts their money where their mouth is than good for him. Club has preached about “ambition” for years, now their best player is seeing if they’re bluffing or not.
👍 Durand, I agree; however time is running out with the season to start in two weeks. Aubameyang is going into the last year of his contract, without signing an extended upgrade. Do Arsenal keep him on his current contract for this season and let him leave on a free or sell now and reinvest in a young striker like Edouard from Celtic?
I think the best decision for us at this moment is to sell Lacazette and use the proceeds to sign Edouard from Celtic. We should also consider adding Thiago Alcantara to the team to inject more steel and creativity to midfield for at least the next three years. These changes would immediately make us top four contenders with or without the dithering Mr Auba. No one player is bigger than the Club.
