Aubameyang’s contract offer might not be the end of the issue

Arsenal is reportedly ready to offer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a new deal in the coming days.

The club has been in talks with the striker for a long time and they have been hopeful of signing him on to a new deal after he entered the final 12 months of his current deal.

The Telegraph claims that the Gunners are finalising plans to offer the former Borussia Dortmund man a new deal worth £250,000-a-week.

It remains to be seen if the striker would be satisfied with the contract offering and put pen to paper, or if he will ask for more.

Mirror Sports, however, reckon that Arsenal offering him a new deal won’t be the end of his contract saga.

The report claims that the striker will take his time and consider that he is already at the end of his days as a footballer and he would like to be competing for titles.

It claims that the striker will know that Arsenal will not play in the Champions League next season, and that would play a key role in his decision.

It adds that if Aubameyang refuses to sign the new deal, the Gunners will have to consider if they would cash in on him or allow him to run down his current deal and leave them for free after next season.

    If he extends his contract with arsenal, he should be deployed to his natural middle role.

    It is not sensible to play one of the best striker in the world as a winter.

    Anyone who won’t renew, we have to offload to the highest bidder, we cannot afford another free departure, unfortunately, that includes Auba.

    Well said Ba Elkhirsawy. We shouldn’t be wasting much time if he’s still pondering whether to sign or not.

    We’ve lost better players, who cares if it’s his last big pay. It pisses me off when I hear that, the money these footballers earn a week, please, as if he Can’t survive if he doesn’t get a bigger amount. Oh, I can’t make it with just £150.000 a week. Get a life.

      Haha yeah smooth I think hes a long way off visiting food banks! The absolute greed in football is staggering.

    As much as I like Auba, I would still not support mortgaging the future of the club again for an ageing player with no future resale value. I would opt instead for selling him now and using the proceeds to improve known weaknesses such as lack of creativity and goal-scoring from the midfield. We rely too much on our striker for scoring. I would also take the risk of running down his current contract in the hope of securing a top four position next year. This is just one of the many tough decisions the Club will be forced to make in the very near future.

      👍 Must agree, R Francis.

    I don’t care how important he is the club must set a deadline,to give us enough time to look at other options and start a bidding war for his services!
