The player, who currently has 20 goals in 34 appearances, across all competitions for the gunners in this 2019/2020 season, would come to a contract expiration at the end of the month of June 2021. Arsenal have been looking at tying him down for two more years, in a contract extension, but the forward has not really paid any attention to striking a new deal with the club, as he looks to challenge for European trophies before he retires from the sport. He is quoted as saying that the new decision he would take concerning his future, in his career, would be the biggest decision of his life.
Auba has enjoyed the fame and affection from the Arsenal fans, and he wouldn't want to look like 'a bad egg' if he eventually betrays the club and leave, but it is understandable that he wants to challenge for the best possible accolades he can get.
Reports had it that Barcelona and Inter Milan had been looking at signing Aubameyang, as a cheap replacement for Lautaro Martinez, as Inter wants to sell the forward to Barcelona, while Barcelona targets Aubameyang as a replacement for Martinez, if they eventually fail at signing Martinez. As at yesterday, Martinez was offered to Barcelona for about £111 million, a price that Barcelona termed exaggerated, and above their budget for the forward. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
Today, it was learned that Juventus also went into the chase for the forward, as they enquired from Arsenal what it would cost them to acquire the forward. Arsenal also presented Aubameyang with a contract extension, to which he is yet to append a signature to.
The big decision now lies in the hands of the centre forward, who would he sign for? Who do you want him to sign for?
