Aubameyang lays down demands as Arsenal contract saga rumbles on

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has told Arsenal what they must offer in order to keep him at the club beyond the end of his current contract. 

Aubameyang has entered the final year of his Gunners deal and is yet to agree on an extension despite months of negotiations.

Therefore, there is plenty of speculation regarding his future, with a number of top European clubs said to be keen.

Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United have been tipped to make offers. Inter Milan, meanwhile, are believed to be a club Aubameyang would be interested in joining.

However, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta insists the club are still hopeful of convincing Aubameyang to sign new terms. In fact, the Spaniard says he feels that the striker wants to stay and help Arsenal improve


And according to a report on ESPN, the 31-year-old has now told Arsenal what it will take to keep him.

It claims that Aubameyang wants at least a three-year deal, taking him to the twilight years of his career.



Additionally, the Gabon international wants to see his wages rise to £250,000-a-week. That is an increase of around £50,000-per-week in comparison to his current deal.

It is unclear whether Arsenal chiefs will agree to those demands, particularly due to the financial impact of COVID-19. Plus, with Aubameyang now over 30-years-old, the Gunners may be hesitant to offer a long-term deal.

An extension for Aubameyang is a priority though, so the club could overlook those factors. The report adds that the club, player and his representatives are ‘working constructively’ to find an agreement.
