Arsenal striker and captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been at the club for two years now and he has been the best player at the club as he has been their top scorer during the two full seasons that he has been at the Emirates Stadium. Aubameyang’s current contract at the Emirates Stadium will end in 2021 and the gunners haven’t been successful in trying to convince him to sign a new deal. Arsenal legend Ian Wright has spoken out on the factor that might make him sign a new deal with the gunners.
Aubameyang will in July be in the final year of his current deal at the Emirates Stadium and many European clubs will be hoping to use this situation as a way to snatch him away from the North Londoners since he will be cheaper due to having just one year left at the Emirates Stadium and there hasn’t been any sign that he will agree to the new deal that the club has supposedly tabled.
Aubameyang is now 30 years old and he is yet to win many titles and so it’s believed that he wants to move to a top club in the summer so that he can end his impressive career with something to show for it. Arsenal legend Ian Wright has however claimed that Aubameyang could stay at Arsenal if he is ready to be patient and be part of Arteta’s team, the former Englishman says that Arteta will take Arsenal to the promised land and that the factor that might see Aubameyang stay is him being patient and want to be part of a special story with the North Londoners.
“You look at Arsenal and the current plight, you have to say we’re going through a transitional period, coming off of Wenger, coming off of Unai Emery and now getting the coach that I believe is going to take us to the promised land.” Arsenal legend Ian Wright told Sporf.
“It depends totally on whether Aubameyang has the patience to wait for this to kick in, but if he didn’t I’m not sure at his age what people could say.”
“He’s somebody that deserves to be playing at a level where he’s able to win things. Depending on his ambition, his people around him and what they’re saying to him, how much he loves the club – and I know he loves the club immensely – you have to pray that’s going to be enough for him to stay.”
“I’m not gonna sit here and say anything other than I wish him all the best with what he does – but I pray to God he stays at Arsenal.”
