Mikel Arteta wants Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to stay. So, Arsenal are ready to meet the player’s demand to keep the captain in the club.
Recently, the issue of the possible departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from the London Arsenal has become quite topical. The current captain of the Gunners has been linked with a number of leading clubs, including Barcelona.
The Mirror reports that the head of the “Gunners,” Mikel Arteta, very much wants the captain of the team to extend his contract and keep protecting the dignity of the Londoners for upcoming years.
According to the above source, Arsenal are ready to take huge financial pressure to retain the captain and meet his demand, according to which the player’s salary will be £ 250,000 per week. In this case, Aubameyang’s contract with Arsenal will be extended for three years.
“We have always had great strikers, and Aubameyang is the player who also deserves to take his place next to them. After winning the title, Aubameyang was very happy. So, he is closer to staying now than he was before,” said Arteta.
Aubameyang joined Arsenal in 2018, in exchange for 63 million from Dortmund. The existing contract expires on June 30, 2021. Londoners will do their best to extend the contract this summer.
Mikel Arteta also wants to keep Danny Ceballos, who is on loan from Real Madrid. The future of the Spanish midfielder will probably be determined after the match between “Royal Club” and Manchester City.
