The London Gunners are about to tie the Gabon striker with a new contract with attractive terms.
The 2019/20 season has ended relatively successfully with Arsenal winning the FA Cup. In the final against Chelsea, The Gunner was successfully upstream thanks to the excellence of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Accordingly, the 31-year-old striker scored both goals for the North London club.
After the match, the former Borussia Dortmund star enthusiastically celebrated with his teammates, accompanied by a bright smile. In the past few days, the future of striker born in 1989 is a problem that makes the Gunner headache. The contract between the two parties is only valid until June 2021. However, Arsenal’s victory in the FA Cup and a ticket to attend the Europa League next season made the negotiations go smoothly.
According to the Daily Mail, the Gunners will provide Aubameyang with a new 3-year contract, with a salary of £ 250,000 / week, higher than the current £ 180,000 / week he is currently enjoying. However, the new deal has yet to bring the highest-earning Arsenal striker Gabon, because he is still inferior to the leader Mesut Ozil – receiving £ 350,000 a week.
Since arriving in the Premier League, Aubameyang has shown impressive goalscoring style. The 31-year-old striker contributed 68 goals after 85 matches in the highest league in England. The former Dortmund star was the hero who scored twice against Chelsea to help Arsenal upstream to win the FA Cup.
