Arsenal captain, Aubameyang’s contract will expires in the summer of 2021. Arsenal will hold a talk with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to know the striker’s future intentions Before the end of the season.
As revealed by the Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta, he said “We will have to do that at some stage before the end of the season for sure and we will see the intentions we have. His intentions too. Where we are sitting in the league table in that moment. It’s difficult to predict that context right now. For me it is very easy, I want to keep him under any circumstances”.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored 61 goals in 96 appearances ever since his arrival 2 years ago. Champions League football would be a major factor for him not to commit himself for a long-term deal with arsenal and this can also be the case of any player.
The Manager has a lot of concern regarding Lucas Torreira, who sustain a fractured right ankle following a tackle from James Bolton in Monday’s FA Cup win at Portsmouth. As confirmed by the club, Torreira will visit a specialist on Friday to know the extent of the injury. Arteta said “Hopefully he can avoid any surgery, which is always very traumatic and hopefully we can have him before the end of the season.” The manager described Torreira as positive despite the setback, has not given up hope the Uruguayan can play a part in Arsenal’s late push for the European spots.
Following their match on Tuesday at Manchester City, which had previously been postponed due to Carabao Cup final, will take place next Wednesday and also Arsenal will also host West Ham on Saturday and hope a third consecutive league win would build momentum in a deeply frustrating campaign. Arteta said “The ones that are paying the price for it are our fans, who have no time to plan,” he said. “Even for us it was not the right day to play the game for the schedule that we have, but we don’t make those decisions. We have to try to support the fans as much as possible and give them everything they need to be able to travel to Manchester and support the team. It’s not ideal.”
