Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, has assured fans there remains confidence of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang signing a new contract.
Arteta confirmed that fans need not be concerned about the future of captain Aubameyang, despite the fact he is yet to sign an extension to his current deal which expires next summer.
“I can say that I am even more confident than I was at the end of last season when you asked me the same question 10 times!” Arteta said, when asked about the 31-year-old’s future.
“I am very optimistic. I think [those fans who are worried] can be pretty relaxed!”
Latest reports claim that Aubameyang will sign a new deal at the Emirates worth £250,000-a-week, in an improved contract running until 2023.
