All eyes will be on superstar Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this offseason. Rumors have swirled the French goal machine could be leaving the Emirates Stadium and head elsewhere next year.
Well, the Arsenal executives are ready to do whatever it takes to make sure the fan favorite player doesn't leave town. Per a report, the Gunners are ready to offer Aubameyang a monster new contract.
Arsenal are hoping they can convince Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to stay at the club and may be ready to offer the striker a new deal worth £250,000 a week. @Matt_Law_DT reports — https://t.co/iuYKpNh3Ed— Telegraph Football (@TeleFootball) July 22, 2020
Per Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph, Arsenal is eyeing giving Aubameyang a £250,000 a week deal to try and convince him to not leave town and stay with the club for the long haul.
Despite losing to Aston Villa this week, Arsenal stunned Manchester City in the FA Cup semifinals over the weekend and will now take on Chelsea in the FA Cup Final on August 1. A win in that title game would surely keep the morale high for the club, and would certainly make 'Auba' quite happy.
For now, we're going to have to wait and see if things are able to progress between the two sides. It goes without saying, but Gunners fans would love to see Aubameyang agree to a long-term contract and keep on his strong ways performing in the English Premier League for years to come.
