Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has appeared to confirm his Arsenal stay after he blinked during an Instagram live video with his brother Willy.
The 31-year-old has just one year left on his deal at the Emirates, but he has left fans optimistic he will extend his contract after he answered a supporter’s request.
Negotiations are said to be positive over Aubameyang penning a new deal in North London, with the striker understood to be seeking £250,000-a-week.
And after Bukayo Saka’s contract extension was announced, the Gabon international confirmed talks are planned about him commiting his future to Arsenal.
Mikel Arteta recently urged the club not to cash in on their prized asset, as he stated he is hopeful terms can be reached with the cub captain.
Aubameyang appeared with his brother Willy in an Instagram live video which was posted on Twitter today.
In the video an Arsenal fan urges him: “Blink if you’re gunna sign.”
Moments later, the forward winked at the camera before performing an exaggerated wink and grinning wildly, leaving Arsenal fans to believe it’s a sure sign he’s staying.
One tweeted: “Done deal.”
Meanwhile, one simply stated: “He’s staying.”
Another happily posted: “This is so Arsenal, and I love it!”
Aubameyang has once again been in fine form this season as he leads Arsenal’s goalscoring charts with 22 strikes in 37 games in all competitions.
