Arsenal Transfer News: Arsenal are ready to give Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a new contract worth £250,000-a-week after his FA Cup heroics against Chelsea.
The Gunners’ talisman goalscorer and captain underlined his unquestionable importance to the club with a fine performance when it mattered on Saturday, as his double led the club to a historic 14th FA cup win
According to the arsenal boss Mikel Arteta challenged the striker to commit himself to the club, saying he can become one of Arsenal’s all-time great strikers if he does.
According to our sources, Arsenal are ready to begin ‘serious negotiations’ over a new contract for Aubameyang, after he also helped the club secure a place in next season’s Europa League by winning the cup.
He has entered the final year of his current £180,000-a-week deal, although that features a 12 month extension clause worth £20m for one season which must be triggered by December 31.
But it is claimed Arsenal want to offer him fresh terms to remove that clause and secure his long-term future at the club.
It is believed the 31-year-old Gabon international is looking for a new deal worth £250,000-a-week and the Gunners are said to be willing to pay up to keep their goal hero at the Emirates Stadium.
However the former Arsenal winger Perry Groves has said that he would be happy for Aubameyang to be given £500,000 per week to ensure he stays at Arsenal, insisting the striker would deserve those astronomical wages.
“I know we’re in difficult financial times, but if they said Aubameyang is on £400,000 or £500,000 a week, that wouldn’t bother me at all,” he said on talkSPORT’s Final Word on Sunday.
“Fans get the hump with players who are on a lot of money and don’t deliver and don’t look like they care.
“But some players warrant it and he does, because he delivers.”
Meanwhile, Arteta has thrown down the gauntlet to Aubameyang to commit his future at Arsenal, saying he could be remembered in the same breath as Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Ian Wright if he signs a new deal to stay.
“We always had incredible strikers at this club and Auba deserves to be named and compared with the big names,” said the manager.
“By winning trophies he will be closer to that the longer he stays there. Hopefully we can have him for longer.
“The biggest problem was to convince him to work the way he was working.
“He was going to get more reward and more respect, and our respect would go to admiration. Admiration from his teammates and the people who have been with him and also from the fans.
“It [goalscoring] is the most difficult thing in football, he makes it look simple.”
