Arsenal hope relationship with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's father will lead to new deal

Arsenal are hoping their good relationship with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s father will lead to the striker signing a new deal at the Emirates.

Aubameyang has been linked with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United as he enters the final year of his contract with the Gunners.

So the Gunners must decide whether to cash in on the 30-year forward this summer or risk losing him for nothing in a year’s time.

The Gabon international shared the golden boot with Liverpool stars Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah last season and is the Premier League second top goalscorer this term.

And Arsenal are determined to keep him as they bid to get back into the Champions League after a three-year absence, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The publication reports that with the coronavirus crisis having an impact on football club’s budgets across the world, the Gunners are prioritising Aubameyang’s contract talks over any new potential signings this summer.

And club officials hope the good rapport they have with Pierre-Francois Aubameyang will help persuade his son to stay at the club.

The striker is represented by relatives, and Aubameyang senior’s name was on the paperwork when his son joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund for £56million in 2018.

Arsenal will resume their Premier League campaign in ninth place when they travel to the Etihad to face Manchester City on June 17.

They are eight points off fourth-placed Chelsea, but only five behind fifth-placed Manchester United.

Fifth spot will be enough to qualify for next season’s Champions League if City fail in their appeal against a two-year European ban, which is being heard this week by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

And former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour has told Mikel Arteta’s side that a late surge for Champions League qualification could be crucial in convincing Aubameyang to stay.

Parlour said: “If they [Arsenal] can come back and hit the ground running and get a good start to the season, obviously the Man City game is going to be very important, if they can get anything out of that game that will give them a lot of confidence going forward.

“Champions League football is so important for a lot of players these days so Aubameyang, if they can squeeze in there, might sign a new contract, I don’t know.

“If they don’t, then he might be on his way and suddenly you’ve got to replace a striker who scores all your goals.”
