Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says he is “pretty positive” about agreeing a new contract with 30-year-old striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Aubameyang’s current deal runs out in June 2021, and Arteta says the club have to show him why he should stay.
“He needs to feel valued, he needs to feel he belongs to us and that we want him,” said Arteta.
The Gabon international says whether he signs a new deal is “possibly the most important decision” of his career. The forward has scored 61 goals in 97 appearances for the Gunners since joining from Borussia Dortmund in 2018.
