Speaking in an interview with French football programme Telefoot Aubameyang stated:

“I haven’t had an offer recently, but I did speak to the club quite a few months ago, and they know why nothing has happened yet. It’s a turning point in my career and I want to be honest with everyone.”

“They [Arsenal] have the keys. It is up to them to do their work and, after that, we will see how things go. It’ll certainly be a very difficult decision to make.” He further stated.

Aubameyang has scored 61 goals in 97 appearances for the Gunners since joining from Borussia Dortmund back in 2018.
