Aubameyang will reach the final year of his contract this summer and a new deal has yet to be negotiated, meaning the Gunners will have to sell or face losing him 12 months down the line for nothing.
Since joining the club in January 2018 the Gabon star has been prolific, scoring 61 times in 97 appearances at all competitions.
Ian Wright, an arsenal legend, says he’s ‘praying’ Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remains at the club this summer but admits he’s ‘deserves to play at a level where he can win stuff.’
He came close last season to winning silverware, as Arsenal was beaten by London rivals Chelsea in the Europa League final, but with a transitional period expected under Mikel Arteta, Wright says the 30-year-old should not be blamed for moving on.
“If I’m going to sit here and think about Aubameyang at his career level, maybe trying to win something, maybe the last chance and people say Real Madrid is sniffing around him,” Wright said to Sport.
Wright said that with the way Aubameyang scores goals in his career, he would do anything for it. Aubameyang has also won stuff in Germany.
He added saying that, “It depends on whether Aubameyang has the patience to wait for this to kick in but if he didn’t know what people might say at his age, he’s someone who deserves to be playing at a level where he can win things. Based on his passion, the people around him and what they mean to him, how much he loves the club – and I know he loves the club tremendously – you have to hope it would be enough for him to live. But I’m not going to sit here and say anything except wishing him all the best for what he does so I’m hoping to God that he’s staying at Arsenal.”
Aubameyang’s new contract at Arsenal will last until the summer of 2021 and it is reported that Paris Saint-Germain joined Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Madrid in the search of the attacker.
