Gabon forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has hinted he is open to Arsenal stay, “only if the North London club officials do their job.”
The 30-year-old striker has been consistent for the Gunners since signing from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in 2018 — scored 49 goals in the 75 matches for the 13-time English Premier League champions.
With his contract with the Mikel Arteta-led side expiring in June 2021, Barcelona and Real Madrid are reportedly desperate to acquire the signature of the deadly forward.
“I have not received a proposal recently, but we have had discussions with the club for quite a few months,” Aubameyang told TF1.
“The [Arsenal] board know very well why nothing has happened so far. They have the key. It’s up to them to do their job and then we’ll see how it goes.
“It’s a turning point in my career and, to be frank with everyone, this will be a very difficult decision to make. But beware, I haven’t made my choice yet. It will be perhaps the most important decision of my career.”
The striker will be leading Arsenal on Wednesday against Manchester City when the Premier League returns after weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Arsenal are aiming at playing in the Champions League next season but to achieve that, they need to collect maximum points in the remaining matches and hope teams above them falter.
