Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta hopes to ruin Chelsea’s pursuit of Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang by convincing the Gabon international to remain at Arsenal.

The striker’s current contract, which is worth around £200,000 a week, expires at the end of next season and he is reluctant to extend his contract.

Arteta, however, believes Aubameyang can continue to be a star in his team beyond the summer of 2021 and wants to sit down with him to discuss a new deal.

According to The Telegraph via Daily Mail, Arteta is confident that his personal approach can make a difference to Aubameyang, who is desperate to play Champions League football again.

Aubameyang has scored an impressive 61 goals in 97 appearances for Arsenal since joining from Dortmund for £56m in January 2018. He won the golden boot last season after scoring 22 Premier League goals.
