Official confirmation awaited after terms agreed on £250K per week deal

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is claimed to have agreed terms with Arsenal over a £250,000 per week contract on a three-year deal.

The Gabonese international has been part of a long-running contract saga this season, with many reports claiming that he was set to quit the club this summer with him eyeing a switch to Barelona or Real Madrid specifically.

Of course those Spanish giants were not alone in being linked with his signature, with the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain all speculated to be chasing him at some point during the campaign, with his contract running into it’s final 12 months not helping to put an end to those rumours.

Latest reports in the Telegraph may well dampen the interest however, with news that terms have finally been agree which will keep him tied to the club unil 2023, on a £13 Million a year deal.

This will come as a huge relief to fans who have had doubts over our potential to agree a new deal for our top goalscorer, who grabbed himself 22 Premier League goals in each of the last two campaigns, outscoring his team-mates ever since joining the club from Borussia Dortmund.

Aubameyang of course scored all four of our goals from our semi-final and final of the FA Cup in which we beat Manchester City and Chelsea to win the trophy,

The 31 year-old was recently awarded Arsenal’s Player of the Season award with a whopping 74% of the voting, beating Bukayo Saka and Bernd Leno to the award.

We will now have to wait for the official channels to confirm the latest reports, which will finally put an end to the speculation, and allow us to concentrate on bolstering the other areas of our team which need attention.

Could Aubameyang’s new deal put Alexandre Lacazette’s future in doubt, or does our team need to concentrate on adding player numbers to the squad?

    What a super summer so far!!

    Laca should stay to complement Auba effort.

    It would be sad to see Lacazette go, I feel he would have a better season next season and truly is a great servant to the club. Yet for the balance of the team, we need to let him go (for the right amount). Nobody seems to mention that Auba isn’t great at retaining the ball/creating on the left. Not to mention that room needs to be made for Saka and Martinelli to get good minutes. My dream would be for us to fulfil Auba’s wish and snag Dembele from Barca. Not that it’s realistic at all but we would have the most exciting front 3 in the world? P.s Pepe has an amazing partnership with Auba (check YouTube), I reckon he’s going to explode next year no matter who we sign.

      P.s I know it sounds contradictory saying we need room for Saka and Martinelli yet wanting to sign Dembele. The thing is that Dembele isn’t going to start as many games as Laca cause he is injury prone (the only reason we might have a chance at getting him). He’s also two footed so can play either wing or behind the striker.

        I thought we’d got Willian in to do this.

          Talking of Phils ,what happened to Iwobi Phil ?

      2. RSH says:

        Phil, wouldnt worry about Dembele links. He’s far outside of what we can afford. And he’s one of Barca’s few young players too so also doubt they will want to part with him yet when they have so many older players to ship out first.

    2. RSH says:

      I think this is the perfect season to cash in on Laca. We hold onto players until they are worth nothing. Seems Laca is wanted by a few clubs and we can get a decent amount. we’ve got enough young talent to be fine upfront, and if Auba stays (which is likely), we have a top LW that can move to CF if necessary too.

    Time for Auba to become another Arsenal Legend.
