Arsenal’s only hope of getting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to remain at the club is by winning the FA Cup and getting approved for the Europa League, according to a report.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang‘s future as an Arsenal player apparently hinges on the result of Saturday’s FA Cup final face-off with Chelsea.
The Gabon international enjoys the final year of his Emirates Arena contract and has brought in interest from a variety of heavyweight clubs, consisting of Barcelona and Inter Milan
Arsenal have the option of setting off a 12- month extension in Aubameyang’s deal, however they hesitate to do so over issues about the financial ramifications of paying his big wages for another year.
According to The Mirror, the only way the Gunners’ position will alter is if they beat Chelsea this weekend and qualify for the Europa League, which they failed to attain by means of a top-six finish in the Premier League.
Participating in the European competition will be worth an extra ₤30 m to Arsenal, it is claimed, enabling them to go over fresh terms with Aubameyang and put an end to the speculation for good.
Mikel Arteta‘s side are also keen to reach a contract with Real Madrid over maintaining loan midfielder Dani Ceballos for another season.
