Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says his future is up to Arsenal
Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wants his club to convince him to extend contract by offering reasonable offer.
Aubameyang, 30, his contract with Arsenal is about to expire soon while Arsenal are in dilemma for offering him good contract following financial woes due to coronavirus pandemic.
The Gunners also seems to have doubt to improve Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s contract due to age as the striker is waiting for their response.
Asked on whether he already received any offer from Arsenal, he told Téléfoot: “I haven’t had any offers recently, of course, but I did speak to the club quite a few months ago, and they know why nothing has happened yet.
“The ball is in their court now, so it’s down to them to do their bit and we’ll see how it goes.
“As I’ve said, it’s a turning point in my career and I want to be honest with everyone: It’ll certainly be a very difficult decision to make and I haven’t yet made it.
“We’ll see. I think it might be the most important choice of my career.”
The striker joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018 for a fee in the region of £60m, says his hunger to win trophies will carry on – whether or not he decides to extend his stay in North London beyond next season.
“Every competitive player dreams of winning trophies,” he added.
“It’s important. People will ask, ‘Does he want to win them at Arsenal or somewhere else?’
“As I said, time will tell. The ball is in the club’s court.
“I certainly want to win trophies and everyone knows that. Regardless of my choice, I’ll keep fighting to win trophies.”
Asked for his ambitions at Arsenal over the coming weeks and months, Aubameyang replied: “I think it’ll be important to restart strongly, but it won’t be simple as we have City in our first game.
“But in more general terms, we hope we can finish the season well, although fans won’t be in attendance unfortunately.
“I hope we finish the campaign well.”
