Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has agreed a new three-year contract with Arsenal, according to reports.

The 31-year-old’s current deal with the Gunners is due to expire next summer where he would then be able to leave on a free transfer.

However, The Athletic now report that Aubameyang has agreed to extend his stay with the club and will sign a new three-year deal ‘imminently’.

The report claims that Mikel Arteta played an instrumental role in convincing the striker to stay at Arsenal.
