Aubameyang future still unclear

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed that his future at Arsenal is still not decided.


The club's captain current deal is set to expire next year, but from the club are desperate to convince him sign a new long-term contract.



Aubameyang has become a major part of Arsenal attack since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund in 2018 as he scored 61 goals in 97 games for the north London club.


The Gabonese has been one of the best finishers in the Premier League ever since he joined the Gunners.


The 30-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Camp Nou, has admitted that deciding whether to stay at the Emirates Stadium or to leave could be the biggest decision of his career.



“Recently I have not received an offer to extend. But, of course, we have had exchanges with the club for a fair few months now," Aubameyang told Telefoot.


“They know very well why so far nothing has happened. They have the keys. It is up to them to do their work and, after that, we will see how things go.


“It is a turning point in my career, and I will be very frank with everyone. It will certainly be a very difficult decision to make.


“I still haven’t decided and we will see. It will maybe be the most important decision of my career."



However, Ian Wright has warned Aubameyang that he is not going to receive a better deal elsewhere and he should consider staying at Arsenal as he will be 32-year-old next year.


He told The Express: “If the season was still going and he continued scoring goals then he’d be in a strong position [to negotiate].


“But I think the position he’s in now – we’re talking about someone who’s going to be 32 next summer.


“He is getting into a situation where if he does see that contract out, are the same people going to come for him?


“The contract that he’s got on the table from Arsenal, is there going to be another club who’s going to give him the same kind of contract?”
