He has netted 15 times during the ongoing campaign for the north London giants but there has still been the uncertainty over his commitment to the club with his contract expiring in the summer of 2021.
Aubameyang has yet to finalise a contract extension with the Gunners but he has, however, dismissed the doubts surrounding his future by stating that he wants to take the club back to the top.
“I would also like to react to some of the rumours that are going around about me in the media. People like making up stories and they should focus on what’s happening on the pitch. They talk too much and it does my head in! I am the Arsenal captain. I love this club. I am committed to it and desperate to bring it back to the top, where it belongs,” he wrote in his programme notes for the FA Cup third round tie.
Aubameyang missed the third round clash of the FA Cup against Leeds United due to flu and he was certainly missed during the opening half where the Championship side dominated the statistics in every department.
Leeds’ inability to finish their attempts benefited the Gunners after the break, where they produced an exact opposite of their first-half display and put their opponents on the backfoot.
Reiss Nelson scored the winning goal with a rather scrappy finish in the 55th minute and that should boost the youngster’s confidence, given he has struggled with his end product over the past few weeks.
Arsenal return to Premier League action against Crystal Palace on the road on Saturday. Aubameyang will likely make his comeback as the club will be eyeing back-to-back league wins for the first time since August.
