‘Chances of Aubameyang signing a contract extension quite high if requests are met,’ says Ornstein

Aubameyang would be happy to stay at Arsenal if the club make him a good offer and match his sporting ambitions according to David Ornstein of The Athletic.

On Aubameyang’s current situation at Arsenal, Ornstein said:

“There’s no contract on the table & I don’t think length of deal has been discussed yet. Given Auba turns 31 tomorrow & already has a year left on his existing deal, I don’t imagine an offer (if it arrives) will be massive in duration but let’s see.”

“I believe he would be happy to stay & he’s settled in London. But he’ll want to see his sporting ambitions matched (in vision) & so too his financial requests. That is not going to be easy for Arsenal but Mikel Arteta sounds like he’s hopeful.”

The Gabon international has one year left on his contract with Arsenal. He joined the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018 and has been the club’s main man ever since. He won the golden boot along with Liverpool’s Sadio Mane and Mo Salah last season and is in the running to win the award again this year. He has scored 17 Premier League goals for Arsenal so far this season. He will be looking to add to his tally when he takes on Manchester City later today.

Aubameyang recently discussed his future with Telefoot and said that Arsenal hold the key to his future. He revealed that the club and him have held talks but that no offer is currently on the table. The Arsenal skipper talked about the importance of winning titles. He admitted that his decision on his future will be a difficult one and the most important one of his life. 

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has personally intervened in an effort to convince his talisman to renew his contract with Arsenal. Arsenal fans will hope the club can convince him that North London is the right place for him to be for the foreseeable future.
