Arsenal have yet to offer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a new deal to extend his time in north London with Chelsea keeping a close eye on proceedings, according to reports.
L’Equipe claimed yesterday that Arsenal had ‘offered Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a contract extension’ with the Gabon international approaching the final year of his contract at the Emirates Stadium.
At 30, Aubameyang’s next contract is likely to be his last big deal before retirement and, with his scoring record, clubs will be queuing up to sign him on a free from next summer.
Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid have all been previously linked with a move but French champions PSG have also emerged as contenders in recent weeks.
And ESPN now claim that Arsenal have ‘not yet offered Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a new contract’ with ‘no extension on the table for Aubameyang to agree or reject’.
The report goes on to say that ‘the two parties have not even started concrete talks’ over a possible new deal with Chelsea – who are also interested in Liverpool target Timo Werner – ‘monitoring’ the situation.
