Here are your Arsenal morning headlines for Monday, 31 August.
Aubameyang rejected other clubs
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang continued his fine run of form by scoring Arsenal’s goal in their Community Shield success against Liverpool.
It was his fifth Wembley goal in little over a month, and his 10th in his last 10 matches.
The Gabon international also scored in the penalty shoot-out, so it’s no wonder Arsenal want him to extend his contract.

And according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Aubameyang has turned down two other clubs in order to commit his future to the Gunners.
“Mikel Arteta just confirmed again that Pierre Aubameyang is ‘close’ to extend his contract,” he tweeted.
Saka becoming a key part of Arteta’s team
Aubameyang wasn’t the only Arsenal player who did well at Wembley on Saturday afternoon. Bukayo Saka also showed what he was capable of in a fine performance.
The 18-year-old assisted Arsenal’s goal, and created three chances in total. That was the most by any of Arteta’s players, and the joint-most for either side.
