According to the Telegraph, Arsenal has agreed to offer Aubameyang a new contract worth 250,000 thousand pounds per week.
The club’s skipper was set to enter the last 12 months of his contract at club and the fans has been crying out for the club to extend his contract. Talks over extension has been lingering for the past few months but it was reported that the club didn’t want to meet his wage demands of 250,000-a-week.
This is due to the fact that Auba is 31-year-Old and the club would not want give a huge pay contract to players over 30 years of age. This was to avoid the same mistake the former club Chairman Ivan Gazidis made when he gave Mesut Ozil a contract extension worth 350,000 pounds per week but these days, the former World Cup winner barely make the match day squad with the London side.
But According to report from @TeleFootball Arsenal are on the verge of offering Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang his demands of £250,000 per week. This is on the advice of club’s coach Mikel Arteta, who has told the club’s hierarchy to do everything to keep the club skipper at the Emirates stadium on longer term. The club is now finalising the contract offer which is believed to be worth around £250,000-a-week, plus bonuses.
The Gabon International striker has been one of the best players in the Premier league since he joined Arsenal two seasons and half ago. He won the Premier league highest goal scorer last season alongside Mohamed Salah and Mane in his first full season in England. He has already scored 20 goals in the Premier league this season three goals behind the league’s leading goal scorer Vardy. The former Dortmund man also recently became the fastest player to reach the 50 Premier league goals mark for the North London club achieving the feat faster than the club’s legend and all time goalscorer Thiery Henry.
Extension of Auba’s will be a big boost for Arsenal and Mikel Arteta’s rebuilding process. Perri’s contribution to the club is undeniable given the fact that he has scored more than 40% of the club’s goals this season in all competitions.
