Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wage breakdown with star to become top Arsenal earner

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to agree a new deal with Arsenal which will see him become the club’s top earner.

The Gabon international had less than months left on his previous contract signed in January 2018, with Inter Milan and Barcelona both interested in a deal.

But success in the FA Cup and Community Shield has led to speculation the 31-year-old will sign on again with Mikel Arteta’s side.

And the Athletic have revealed the numbers behind the deal that will keep the Gunners’ top-scorer in north London.

The new contract runs until 2023, keeping him at Arsenal for three years and overtaking Mesut Ozil’s £350,000-a-week deal.

Talks were started by former head of football Raul Sanllehi earlier this year before technical director Edu and contract specialist Huss Fahmy finished the agreement.

The report also states that manager Arteta has been “instrumental” in talks, wth the club captain and a manager having a “tremendous mutual respect” for each other.

Aubameyang is about to start his fourth season with the Gunners, scoring 29 goals for them in 44 appearances last year.

And he already has a goal in the 2020/21 campaign, finding the net for Arsenal’s goal in their 1-1 Community Shield draw against Liverpool before winning on penalties.

Arteta was already confident of Aubameyang’s deal at the time, telling BT Sport last month: “We are trying to convince him he’s in the right place and the right environment to produce what he did here and four weeks ago [in the FA Cup final win over Chelsea].
