Arsenal icon Ian Wright keeps promise by visiting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s dad for contract talks



Arsenal legend Ian Wright has taken matters into his own hands by visiting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s dad to hold discussions about a new contract for the Gunners star.
Like every Gooner, Wright is desperate for Aubameyang to sign a new deal and end speculation about his long-term future at the Emirates.

Aubameyang is on the verge of signing a new Arsenal contract

Aubameyang was at his influential best during Arsenal’s opening day victory over Fulham, rounding off a 3-0 win with a stunning strike.

The 31-year-old enters the season with less than a year remaining on his contract, although he is expected to agree fresh terms imminently.

Speaking on Match of the Day on Saturday night, Wright said: “I’m going to go see Papa Aubameyang tomorrow.

“They have to sign, simple as that, I’m not going to leave. [I’ll take the contract to him personally] if I have to!”

Aubameyang’s father then uploaded a picture on Instagram of himself with Wright at the Emirates on Monday.

He captioned the picture: “What a surprise the legend @wrightyofficial came to see me. what do you think? In any case for me it was very enriching.”

Speaking after the opening day victory at Craven Cottage, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta hinted at an announcement regarding his captain’s future in the coming days.

When asked by talkSPORT about Aubameyang’s contract situation, the Arsenal manager said: “I’m very hopeful that in the next couple of days you’re going to stop asking those questions.”

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training



Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
