The real reason why Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has not signed a new Arsenal deal.
The fallout from failing to win their last few games has been massive for Arsenal. The club’s supporters have grown impatient and they have created one of the most toxic environments in the Premier League at the Emirates Stadium.
There have also been reports of unrest in the club’s dressing room. We could go on and it would be difficult to get something good happening at Arsenal at the moment.
With all that is going on, one of the biggest problems the club faces is tying down their top players to new contracts.
Reports from Metro Sports claims that the Gunners are struggling to tie Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang down to a new deal because of the uncertainty surrounding Unai Emery’s future.
Emery has failed to inspire his side to a win in any of their last five league games. There have been calls for him to be fired, but the club has backed him to turn things around.
They have also been looking to get Aubameyang on a new deal but the Gabonese attacker is not willing to commit his future under present circumstances.
Aubameyang will enter the final year of his current deal in the summer and the club may look to cash in on him. However, a change of manager may bring a new lease of life that would convince the striker to renew his current deal.
I hate to say this but the brutal truth is that whoever is the manager if Aubameyang does not sign an extension he must be sold. Arsenal cannot afford to lose another high profile player on a free.
