Arsenal ‘offer Aubameyang contract extension’ amid PSG interest
Posted On June 1, 2020
Arsenal have made an offer to extend Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s contract amid reported interest in their striker, according to reports.
A report in Spain a week ago claimed that Paris Saint-Germain were ‘negotiating an agreement’ with Arsenal in an attempt to sign Aubameyang for around €38million.
Speculation over Aubameyang’s future has ramped up in recent months, with the Gabon international approaching the final year of his contract at The Emirates.

Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid have all been previously linked with a move but French champions PSG have also emerged as contenders in recent weeks.
However, a L’Equipe (via the Daily Mail) now claims that Arsenal have ‘offered Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a contract extension’.
At 30, Aubameyang’s next contract is likely to be his last big deal before retirement and, with his scoring record, clubs will be queuing up to sign him on a free from next summer.
The president of the Gabon FA recently urged Aubameyang to leave Arsenal so he can win trophies before the end of his career.
“Right now, he’s at Arsenal, and he’s won nothing here, so it’s a collective failing,” Pierre Alain Mounguengui told ESPN.
“I don’t want to say that Arsenal aren’t ambitious, but Arsenal don’t have ambitions as high as some other clubs as far as Europe is concerned.”
Mounguengui added: “If Pierre could secure a contract with a more ambitious club, he’d definitely find his place there.
“All Gabonese people see Aubameyang at this level, where he can now end his career at a major club and, above all, beyond individual trophies, to bring home a major competition.”
