Latest Martinez news should remind Arsenal fans that Aubameyang’s future is still uncertain

Arsenal wants to keep hold of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang beyond this summer, and for some time now it seems that nothing is happening on that front.

The Gunners have been busy making new signings ahead of the new season and some fans may have forgotten that their star man is in the final year of his current deal at the club.

A new report from Sport via Mail Online claims that Barcelona is closing in on a move for Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez and that should be a cause for concern among Arsenal fans.

This is because both teams in that transaction are interested in signing the Gunners’ captain.

Should Barcelona succeed in their move for the Argentinean, Inter might return for Aubameyang and if they don’t succeed, Barca might renew their interest in the Arsenal captain.

Things are looking ever more positive at the Emirates at the moment and one might be tempted to think that keeping hold of Aubameyang is a given.

However, until he signs the contract, anything negative or positive can still happen.

The saga is dragging on far too long and the longer it takes in getting him on a new deal, the more advantage is being handed to him.

This is similar to what happened in 2018 with Mesut Ozil, the Gunners ended up handing the German a mega-money deal that he hasn’t been able to justify.

    Aubameyang is staying at least for one more season. If he decides not to sign a new deal, we will not die. No player is bigger than the club. Thierry Henry left in 2007 and the heavens did not fall

    Great Ezeji
    We,all survive without Barca will continue to be Barca without Messi

    That said I think he would sign. No anxiety, relax.

    Auba will sign when he sees who we have brought in, a gentleman’s agreement between the Captain and the Club is already in place, all depends on who we bring in to convince him we are going to have a squad to get in the top4. Pretty simple.

    Willian, Saliba & Gabriel all in.
    Mari & Soares permanently.
    Cabellos near enough done on loan.
    Partey & Aouer the last targets.

    If does work out a team of;
    Leno
    Bellerin
    Saliba
    Gabriel
    Teirney
    Partey
    Cabellos
    Aouer
    Pepe
    Laca
    Auba

    Martinez
    Soares
    Luiz
    Mari
    Saka
    Xhaka
    AMN
    Smithrowe
    Willian
    Nketiah
    Martinelli

    (Ozil)

    Papa, Kolasnic, Holding, Chambers, Torreira, Guendouzi, Mhiki (gone), Elneny.

    Dream window

    This is why, I believe, we should think in the long term interest of the Club to sell AL and use the proceeds to pursue Edouard of Celtic. With the funds remaining, we could also sign cheaper alternatives to Partey. Going forward, the team would be younger, stronger and leaner with little or no impact on our bank account.

      RFrancis, there is no way Arsenal can afford to keep Aubameyang to see out the last year of his contract and leave on a free. Yes Arsenal has to replace his goals, but Arsenal would probably still keep Lacazette, Martinelli, Pepe, Nheketia and could encourage Balogun to stay and they could step up. Also the midfielders Arsenal is looking at, goals from midfield should increase.
      Edouard is a fine prospect and would deserve investment by Arsenal.
      The Club has to stop pandering and procrastinating. They have made Aubameyang a great offer, he either signs or should be sold.

      1. RFrancis says:

        I agree with you entirely ozziegunner, except for Lacazette, but I can understand your concerns.

    This club, back to front is being designed to lay in long balls over the top and crosses from every angle on the pitch, all– for the benefit of Auba.

    Whomever else is making a pitch for PEA? Doesn’t matter which. None of those teams are bing comprised so solely to take advantage of and make scoring easier than Arsenal and Arteta are– for the benefit of Auba.

    Another club may offer him additional lucre. But it can’t that much more. He seemingly loves life in London. We fans adore him. He’s in the midst of becoming a hero at a great and historied club. Number 14 has the opportunity to be included in a pantheon of greats at– The Arsenal.

    Signing is a formality. Auba is home.
