Ornstein states that Aubameyang three-year deal imminent

David Ornstein has revealed that a deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to extend his Arsenal contract is imminent.

The Gabon striker’s future has been speculated for months now, and with him set to sign on the dotted line any moment, we can concentrate on other business.

Aubameyang has been our stand-out star over the past couple of seasons, scoring an outrageous amount of goals in the process, and his five goals (plus the winning goal in the penalty shootout) in the FA Cup semi and final last term, as well as in the community Shield even led us on to pick up two types of silverware.

We can now target further glory with our star-striker, as he is set to sign a new three-year deal with the club, in a deal claimed ‘that will enable him to become Arsenal’s highest-paid player’, David Ornstein and James McNicholas at The Athletic states.

This would intimate that the striker will become equal or higher paid than Mesut Ozil, who rakes in an astounding £350,000 per week, but I have a feeling the wording means that he will become the highest earner in the future, as in when the German playmaker leaves next summer(could be wrong).

The most important thing however shouldn’t be the salary being paid, but the fact that we managed to persuade our most influential player to extend his stay with the club, and we can now build the team around him for the foreseeable future as we look to return to the Champions League places, and challenge for further glory.

Aubameyang’s new deal has all stemmed from his (and his father’s) impressive relationship with new manager Mikel Arteta and the key figures at the Emirates currently.

This proves as yet another coup, as yet further people buy into the philosophy that the manager represents, but this could well be the biggest deal yet.

How crucial will Aubameyang’s involvement be in our push back up the table and in building a team worthy of challenging for the top spot?

    It has been imminent for too long tbh, so many ITKs have been saying this for weeks, Ornstein is quite reliable so i guess it’s done then. I hope it is officially announced before Saturday. coyg!!

  2. Eddie says:

    I find it pretty ridiculous that after rejecting PSG’s 25M for Bellerin, they had the guts to come back for him asking to take him on loan.
    They have money FFS!! Spend it or f##k off!! Good thing Arsenal rejected the loan bid.
    I hope we reject any bid that’ll include Draxler coming to us for Douzi too.

    If they want us to take Draxler,let them add 10M to Douzi’s 35M fee then we’ll do business.
    I’ll be disappointed if Douzi goes for Draxler.. It’s either cash or nothing

    1. ACE says:

      I agree with pretty much everything
      youve stated Eddie, but who is
      honestly going to stump up £35+M
      for Guendouzi? If moneybags PSG
      is more interested in a swap deal,
      than I just dont see the mercurial
      Frenchmen being the subject of
      any substantial, straight cash offer
      from any English of European club.

      If Kroenke doesnt come to the
      rescue (LMFAO) at the midnight
      hour of the window than AFC
      might sadly be done with there
      transfer business.

      I PRAY Im wrong.

      1. Eddie says:

        Surely we can’t get that 35M but anything close to 30M would do.
        We need cash, not another body in Draxler.
        This isn’t 2014, he rejected us and moved on.
        We don’t need him right now, he’s not improving us in any way.
        People are being reactionary because of the name, but he’s been a failed player for the past 3 years.
        Who is he going to bench in our team?
        Xhaka? No F##king way..
        Ceballos? Ceballos will still have to battle it out with Aouar (who Arteta Is hell bent on bringing here).. And we still have Party who is also a top target.
        Draxler will only be waste of wages.
        Accept 25M upwards for Douzi and let Smith Rowe replace him.
        Draxler can go regain his form at Leeds United.
        Just an average player now, he can’t even make it into Germany’s first eleven and people still think he’ll improve us.
        When we’re trying to move up

        1. ACE says:

          I could care less about a bang
          average player like Draxler, that
          wasnt the essence of my reply.

          Arsenal IMHO arent going to get
          ANYWHERE near there evaluation
          for MT and it seems potential
          swap deals including the young
          lad have been rejected as well.

          AFC fans may have been hopelessly
          optimistic that MT would be at
          the center of a transfer bidding
          war this summer


  3. Phenom says:

    Auba’s announcement is no news again. Aouar’s rumour keeps heating up but personally, will give ESR chance than to spend so much on Aouar. Teye Partey is a must buy.

  4. S.J says:

    I can’t wait for the official announcement.. I love the guy already.
    Now we will see how a player earns his contract and fans won’t complain about what he is being paid.

    I am having a feeling Aubameyang will win the golden boot this coming season.

    Fantastic captain Aubameyang.

    Now Krankie should seal this summer up with Thomas Partey.
    If Krankie funds the purchase of Thomas Partey by any way, I will love him forever.

    1. Robert Acedius says:

      Love Stanley? Love his wife instead. It’s her money.

  5. FoSulli says:

    Bellerin Saliba Luiz Holding Tierney
    Xhaka Ceballos
    Pepe Willian

    1. ACE says:

      Luiz is reportedly injured and may
      be out for an extended period of

  6. Robert Acedius says:

    Sell Laca, sell Hecuba, sell Guendo… even Emi Martinez, who I think is the clubs number one stopper. We need money for Partey, before it’s to late. And, of course, it would be lovely with Houssem Aouar too. But how realistic is it? If the arabs of Manchester is going for him, how long will our little purse do?

    1. Highbury Hero says:

      Sorry who is Hecuba? Not getting Partey is not the end of the world and I don’t see any other club interested in him.

  7. Robert Acedius says:

    Maybe because it’s fake news. And isn’t five months more adequate?

  8. James says:

    Klopp says the dippers cannot behave like some teams owned by countries and oligarchs ha ha i’m sure he’s gonna hear from lampard very soon. While some of us admire how the chavs are being run ATM let’s not forget what Sheikh Al Thani (?) did to malaga, the guy woke up one morning and declared he was scaling back his investment in the club after splashing on big players and big contracts!

  9. Robert Acedius says:

    “PSG Agree Al Florenzi Deal…” Great, guys. When we had the chance to get rid of that little fart (Hecuba)… The £25m could have meant a lot.

  10. ozziegunner says:

    The word is that Aubameyang’s 3 year deal is for a wage of £375k per week. This increase can be covered by the departure of Mhikatarian freeing up his £200k per week wages. Naturally he had to be Arsenal’s highest paid player.
    Arsenal has procrastinated and left this signing to the day before the first match day. Can anyone explain why it has taken so long?
    In the meantime, 7 weeks of the transfer window has passed. Arsenal is about to play their first game with last season’s midfield, which delivered eighth position, the worst League position in 25 years.
    We will soon find out whether Arsenal is financially stronger than we think. Also we better hope that Aubameyang doesn’t get injured, because without him, where are the goals going to come from?

    1. Robert Acedius says:

      That’s the £375k a week question. Keine Ahnung.

  11. GunneRay says:

    I know it’s stupid money but Auba was the difference in us being relegated last year and staying in the top half! How much was that worth?

    It’s just fantastic that Auba wants to stay and not jump ship for his own gain. He obviously wears the Arsenal badge with pride and passion!!

    Well done Auba – A true legend! 🙂


    1. Sue says:

      👍👍👍 Totally agree!

      1. Robert Acedius says:

        Plus five cup goals in three matches and TWO more trophy’s than spurs. As long as I don’t have to pay him – he’s worth every dime. Buy more Ferraris, buddy!

        1. Sue says:

          😂😂😂 I’m sure he will and may even stretch to yet another lambo!! Well deserved I say!

    2. SueP says:

      I’m thrilled that Auba is staying…. thrilled!!
      If he is being paid £375kpw not many other clubs would or could part with that much. He isn’t 26 or 27 anymore. That said he made the difference between a dire season and a promising finish. It appears Arteta was instrumental in sealing the deal and Arsenal are in the up

      1. Robert Acedius says:

        He was 28 when he came, but he is one of very few players resent years who haven’t been a disappointment. Auba have done exactly what he was bought for. With brilliance. Faster to 50 EPL goals even than icon Thierry Henry. Let’s hope he beats Thierry to 100 too. And to one hundred and fifty.

        1. SueP says:

          Totally agree Robert

  12. Wayne says:

    Personally what ever Arsenal have agreed to pay Aubameyang in this new contract, he deserves it. The fact that he has committed is special and bodes well for the club’s aspirations of making it to the top four and higher , just start winning silverware. He is a vital part of our attack, but, he needs more support and supply from the midfield. Therefore, Arsenal must now break the bank and buy Houssem Aouar . Kroenke and the Arsenal board, wake up and get Aouar deal done asap.

  13. Iykmatt says:

    For me £375k is too much for one player when we’ve been complaining of high wage bill,hope we won’t regret it like ozil
