Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is uninterested in new Arsenal contract talks as he looks for a move away.
Arsenal is struggling to tie down Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to a new deal as he enters the final 18 months of his current contract.
The Gabonese attacker has been arguably the most consistent player in the current Arsenal team having scored 53 goals in 83 games since joining the Gunners.
His 12 goals from 17 games this season still hasn’t helped Arsenal’s push for the top four and he seems to be fed up with the underachievement of the team.
Reports from Mirror Sports claim that Aubameyang has pulled out of talks with the Gunners as the team continues to regress.
Arsenal are currently 10th on the league table and are closer to the relegation zone than to the top of the league table.
The report claims that Aubameyang wants to win more trophies as well as play in the Champions League, but Arsenal doesn’t look like a team that can help him achieve that.
The board is now facing a dilemma, they have to decide quickly if they want to cash in on him or allow him to leave the club for free at the end of next season.
I am not sure if he would stay even if a new manager comes in and turns the season around. He is running out of time, he will be 31 next June and if he is going to secure a move to a club that can challenge for major honours he probably has to do it soon.
