Aubameyang ‘will only consider new Arsenal contract in next few weeks if no other teams contact him’

PIERRE EMERICK-AUBAMEYANG will reportedly only consider signing a new deal with Arsenal if no other offers are put on the table.

The 31-year-old captain has just one year left on his deal at the Emirates and is understood to be seeking £250,000-a-week.


The Gunners striker has been strongly linked with a transfer to either Barcelona, Chelsea or Real Madrid for a price as low as £20million.

Mikel Arteta recently urged the club not to cash in on their prized asset, as he stated he is hopeful terms can be reached with the club captain.

Aubameyang is currently on a £180,000-a-week contract and negotiations are believed to be moving in the right direction.

But, according to Fabrizio Romano, the Gabon star will on sign an extension in the coming weeks if NO other interested parties make an official offer.

Aubameyang confirmed talks are planned after Bukayo Saka's contract extension was announced.

He also hinted he was set to stay at the Emirates in a recent Instagram live video with his brother Willy.

In the clip an Arsenal fan urges him "Blink if you're gunna sign" - to which the forward winked at the camera before performing an exaggerated wink and grinning wildly,

He joined the Emirates from Borussia Dortmund for £60m in 2018, one of boss Arsene Wenger's last major deals before he left.

But the striker is said to have become disillusioned with the lack of success at Arsenal and seeks out a club where he has more chance of winning trophies.

It would be a major blow to the club if Auba jumped ship as once again he has been in fine form this season, leading the Gunners goalscoring charts with 23 strikes in 38 games in all competitions.
