Mikel Arteta CONFIDENT Aubameyang will stay at Arsenal
- Arsenal Manager confident that Aubameyang will be at Arsenal next season
- Aubameyang is yet to agree to a new contract with his current approaching final year
- Arsenal need to win the FA Cup on Saturday to qualify for European football
- Mental Health and Psychosocial considerations during the COVID-19 pandemic
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta confident that Pierre Emerick Aubameyang will be at Arsenal next season.
The Spaniard insists that the FA Cup final will not be Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s last game for Arsenal.
But Arteta admits beating Chelsea in the Wembley showpiece will be vital towards keeping their 27-goal star.
Aubameyang, 31, goes into the showdown with his future in doubt given he has less than one year left on his current deal.
Arsenal must win the FA Cup to qualify for the Europa League, which would provide a huge financial boost to Arteta’s hopes of rebuilding the squad and improve their chances of keeping Aubameyang.
But when asked whether he felt it could be Aubameyang’s last game for the Gunners, Arteta said: ‘No, I don’t have that feeling.
‘It’s a package at the end, you need to have a lot of ingredients on the table to persuade a player of his level to be at this football club.
