The prolific Gabonese striker is yet to sign a new contract with the Gunners and has seen speculation regarding a possible transfer to build because of this.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has once more sought to calm the move talk surrounding him at Arsenal by saying that he’s”very happy” at Emirates Stadium.
The prolific Gabonese striker is approaching the final 12 months of his contract in north London.
Every effort has been made by the Gunners to get Aubameyang tied back on new terms, but no extension has been agreed as yet.
That’s maintaining the rumour mill ticking over, with the 30-year-old frontman being connected with the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United.
Aubameyang has, however, offered no sign that he’s looking for a move and it has reiterated that stance when reflecting on his present standing.
“It means a lot [to play ],” Aubameyang told Arsenal Player.
“When I was younger I used to watch Arsenal since they always had good players and they won decorations also. I think it’s actually a joy to be here, I am quite happy – that is my feeling.
“I really like the fans here. On my Insta, I’m happy I have them since following this miss [against Olympiacos] everyone could say ‘he killed us now’ but [rather ] everyone sent me messages to say’keep your head up’ and things like that so I am just pleased to have them and happy together.
“When I arrived back home [after the Olympiacos game]I saw my children and they spoke to me and said,’do not worry this can occur’. I’m glad to have them, it is true it is cruel, but that is football.
“I try to always be ready, whatever occurs. That is why I say when I look at myself, which I need to be prepared so I do all of the things, I attempt to be fit every match and for the moment it’s working well.”
Aubameyang was snapped up by Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018.
He immediately established himself as a vital man and has recorded 61 goals for the Gunners in 96 appearances.
Captaincy responsibility has also been taken on by a talismanic presence, with Aubameyang hoping to see Mikel Arteta’s side chase down a top-four finish and FA Cup glory before the current effort comes to a close.
