Aubameyang reveals status of contract talks in latest interview

It’s always concerning when players are quiet about their futures. Luckily, we got to hear from Aubameyang today about his Arsenal contract situation. The striker’s contract expires in the summer of 2021, so Arsenal would either have to let him go for free then, sell him now, or extend.

Speaking to Telefoot journalist Yassin Nfaoui, he confirmed that “nothing has been decided” as he mulls over the “most important choice” of his career. You can catch the video interview below:

In the same interview, he says that he hasn’t recently received an offer, but discussions have been ongoing. Below is another excerpt of the interview, translated from French:

Replacing Aubameyang would not be easy and it seems Arsenal are focusing on bringing a midfielder in anyway, so they would want to get this resolved sooner rather than later. Furthermore, options to replace him are certainly limited. Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard and Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic are two names that have been mentioned.

Transfer activity is going to be limited for all clubs in the window this year, so it is certainly plausible that Aubameyang will end up staying. Losing him for free the following year would still be a huge blow, however, and Arsenal will not want to see a repeat of what happened with Aaron Ramsey, or Alexis Sanchez, who ended up moving in the January window before his contract expiry date.
