Report: Arsenal ready to hand 29-year-old new 3-year deal worth £200,000-a-week
Unai Emery appears to be keen on doing whatever it takes to keep hold of his most reliable goalscorer from last season as he looks to rebuild ahead of the 2019/10 campaign.
The Arsenal manager gave the fans some hope over a possible return to the Champions League next season as he flirted with a top four finish all year, only to miss out on a place in the big competition by just a point.
What is next on Emery’s list of priorities will be to retain the services of key players like Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, who are capable of attracting the interest of other big clubs.
According to the Sun, the Gunners are ready to hand the Gabon star a new contract which would be worth £200,000-a-week in wages, in order to fend off interest from other sides who may want to lure the striker away from Arsenal.
The 29-year-old is already earning £180,000-a-week at the moment and even though he may soon be entering the twilight of his career, Arsenal appear to be desperate to convince him to stay in London by offering him a new three-year deal.
