Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s Arsenal future ‘will depend on the club’s summer transfer plans’

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang‘s future at Arsenal will depend on the club’s transfer activity this summer, according to reports in France.

The Gunners captain won his first trophy at the club after scoring both goals in Saturday’s 2-1 FA Cup final victory against Chelsea at Wembley. 

However, the 31-year-old refused to comment on his contract situation following the win – which also saw Mikel Arteta’s men qualify for next season’s Europa League – with the striker having just a year left on his deal at the Emirates Stadium.

Reports last month claimed the club were preparing to offer him a salary of around £250,000 per week as part of his new deal, but Le10Sport claim that increased wages and European football will not be enough to keep the Gabon star in north London, with the Gunners’ recruitment also at the centre of his concerns.

The report from the French outlet adds that Aubameyang is still hesitant to sign a new contract despite Saturday’s victory, and wants the club to heavily invest in the squad this summer.

It also adds that the Arsenal skipper dreams of seeing former Borussia Dortmund team-mate Ousmane Dembele sign for the Gunners this summer.

The 23-year-old Barcelona winger has not played a competitive game since November and underwent surgery on his injured hamstring in February, but is understood to have an excellent rapport with Aubameyang.

However, the same outlet claims that Dembele wants to fight for his place at Barcelona despite the Catalan club wanting to raise funds to secure the signing of Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez.

But in a bid to satisfy Aubameyang, the report claims Arsenal are working on their shortlist for the summer that includes Dembele’s Barcelona team-mate Philippe Coutinho, Dembele’s namesake and compatriot Moussa, as well as Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey.

The outlet also claims Arteta has targets within the Premier League, including Wolves forward Raul Jimenez and Newcastle’s Allan Saint-Maximin.
