Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will stay loyal to Arsenal. According to several media reports, Aubameyang agreed to a new three-year extension that will make him one of the club’s highest-paid players.

Reportedly, the negotiations between Aubameyang and Arsenal intensified in recent days, and the two sides managed to agree to terms which will see the 31-year-old striker earn around $330,000 per week. The contract also has several bonuses and incentives regarding the club’s success as well as the player’s individual performances.

Aubameyang only had one year left on his deal before agreeing to an extension and was willing to consider his options with several high-profile clubs like Barcelona being interested in his services.

Since joining Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in 2018, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang emerged as arguably the club’s most important player. He led the team in scoring in each of the previous two years while winning the Premier League Golden Boot in 2018/19. Aubameyang played a total of 109 matches in Arsenal jersey and scored impressive 70 goals.

Locking Aubameyang to a new contract represents a second major move for Arsenal in recent days, as the club previously agreed to terms with Brazilian winger Willian. The club is also looking to make several more additions in order to return to Premier League title contention under new manager Mikel Arteta.
