Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should get exactly what he wants as news about his contract emerged from L’Equipe (via Daily Mail).
According to the outlet, the north London club have offered him an extension on his current contract and are attempting to ward off interest in their centre-forward with fresh terms.
The lethal frontman has just one year left on his current deal and is yet to agree on a prolonged stay, with a number of clubs including Paris Saint Germain interested in a move for him this upcoming summer transfer window.
Will Aubameyang leave Arsenal this summer?
PSG believe a fee between £36 million and £45 million could be enough to persuade the Gunners to cash in rather than risk losing Aubameyang for nothing in the summer of 2021, according to le10sport.
The fact that the French team can offer UEFA Champions League football may be of interest to the 30-year old, but AFC should be trying to push extra hard to qualify for the competition for the remainder of this season and therefore give Aubameyang an incentive to stay.
The Emirates outfit potentially sit just five points off of a qualifying spot with 10 Premier League games left to play given that Manchester City’s ban may still be upheld, meaning that fifth place may be enough to qualify.
Aubameyang is simply too important to lose at this moment in time given the relatively high numbers that he is produced for the club and the added fact that he is captain.
Given that no Champions League football for the next campaign is also a very realistic possibility, Arsenal must offer the Gabonese international exactly what he wants.
Gooners, should Auba be given exactly what he wants? Comment below!
