Report: Arsenal offer Aubameyang contract extension as Gunners look to finally secure star striker’s future

Arsenal have made huge attempts in bid keep captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Emirates beyond next summer as they offered him contract extension.

The 30-year-old striker has just one year left on his current deal and is yet to agree on a prolonged stay, with a number of clubs including Barcelona, Real Madrid and PSG interested in a move for him this summer.

But according to The L’Equipe, clams Aubameyang has received the offer of a contract extension at the Emirates.

Uefa Champions League competitions may be serious lure for Aubameyang, who despite his consistent performances, has found himself battling with Arsenal in the Europa League since joining from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018.

Gunners are eight points off fourth ahead of the English Premier League’s return and look unlikely to qualify for next season’s European club competition.

But the club are making moves to tie down their prised asset, who shared the Premier League golden boot last season alongside Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

They want to put a stop to a protracted transfer saga and secure Aubameyang’s future as painlessly as possible.

Despite the 30-year-old entering the final few years of his career, there has been no slowing down in his production.

He has scored 61 goals in just 97 games for the club and been an instant hit with fans since arriving from the Bundesliga in 2018.

Inter Milan are also understood to be keeping tabs on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but are unlikely to be able to afford his wages.
