Arsenal opens up contract extension talks with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
It has been a long time coming but according to the media, Arsenal is finally in talks to extend Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s contract.
The online press are citing Italian journalist Nicolò Schira via his Twitter account as the source of this info

I am not sure how credible Mr Schira is, he could be a tabloid specialist or a respected journalist. Whatever he is, his tweet is being highlighted as evidence that talks have started between Arsenal and the player.
It has taken a while to get to this stage, we have known about the clubs new policy and that Auba would be sold if he does not agree on a new deal by next summer.
If there is one player Arsenal cannot afford to lose it is Aubameyang. The Gabon international has basically been solely responsible for Arsenal being third right now.
Without Auba’s goals, the situation would be very different, in fact, we would be talking about whether Emery should be fired. The 30-year-old has single handily saved the managers job.
It will also send a massive message to other players in the squad if Aubameyang signs an extension. It will show the determination of the board to keep their best players and continue to rebuild.
This is good news for everyone concerned, let’s just hope that it is factual tweet and that talks are underway.
