Auba’s Big Deal for Arsenal
Arsenal are likely to announce a new three-year deal for captain Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang on Friday worth over 350, 000 pounds a week to make him the biggest earner at the club.
The Gabonese international, 31, is currently on 200k per week and the new deal will make him overtake top earner Mesut Ozil who is on 350k per week deal.
The breakthrough for Arsenal ends weeks of speculation about the future of the prolific striker signed from Borrusia Dortmund.
Aubamenyang was a key player in Arsenal’s mixed 2019/20 season that saw the North London side finish eight on the log but won the FA Cup in a sensational end of the season turnaround.
The former AC Milan startlet scored both goals for Arsenal in their 2-0 win over Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final and scored twice again in the final victory over Chelsea.
He continued his rich form and romance with Wembley Stadium in London as he scored against Liverpool in the Community Shield before scoring the winning penalty shoot out.
Meanwhile, Ola Aina will be unveiled at Fulham on a year loan deal from Torino while Galatasaray have signed Super Eagles midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo from Stoke City.
