The Gunners’ latest signing is desperate to see his new club tie a prized asset down to fresh terms
Willian has stressed that Arsenal have to keep hold of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and that the striker’s continued presence at Emirates Stadium is “very important” to him.
Aubameyang has enhanced his reputation as one of Europe’s most prolific frontmen since swapping
Borussia Dortmund for Arsenal in January 2018.
The Gabon international has scored an impressive 70 goals in 109 appearances for the Gunners, 29 of which were recorded during the 2019-20 campaign.His latest double helped Mikel Arteta’s men beat Chelsea 2-1 in the FA Cup final , but he refused to be drawn on speculation over his future after the final whistle at Wembley.
Aubameyang only has one year left to run on his current contract, and has been linked with a potential move to either Barcelona or Manchester United in recent months.
Goal has reported that Arsenal have reached an agreement with the centre-forward over an extension, but a final announcement over his future is unlikely to be forthcoming until the club’s pre-season camp gets underway on August 22.
Willian, who moved to the Emirates on a free transfer after leaving Chelsea earlier this month , has talked up how integral Aubameyang is to the Gunners’ hopes of competing for more major honours while expressing his hope that his new team-mate remains in north London beyond 2021.
The Brazilian midfielder told The Sun : “I joined Arsenal because we can challenge for titles but Pierre will be a big part of the plan. He has to stay — it is very important to me.
“This is a guy who gets 25-30 goals a season and we have to keep a player like that. He’s one of the best players in our team and somebody I want to be making chances for.”
Arteta expressed his belief that Aubameyang can become an Arsenal legend if he decides to commit to fresh terms with the club after the FA Cup final, telling reporters: “We always had incredible strikers at this football club and Auba deserves to be named and compared with the big names.
“By winning trophies he will be closer to that and the longer he stays there as well. Hopefully we can have himfor more time

Jesse Lingard to Tottenham transfer hinges on Dele Alli exit

images 28 4 Jesse Lingard to Tottenham transfer hinges on Dele Alli exit

Jesse Lingard moving to Tottenham this transfer window hinges on whether or not Dele Alli leaves.


The Manchester United ace has been octracised from the group by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

After hiring Mino Raiola as his agent, Lingard has been looking at the exit door at Old Trafford.

A way back into the starting XI looks improbable, especially after the signings of Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek.

Lingard had been linked with several Italian teams, including AC Milan, Fiorentina and Roma.

But that interest has died down after United slapped a whopping £30m price-tag on the England international.

With the transfer window eking out, it appeared likely that Lingard would be spending the season with United.

But Tottenham have emerged as shock contenders for his signature in the past few days.

The 27-year-old had played his best football under Jose Mourinho while he was in charge of the Red Devils and a reunion is on the cards.

However, Spurs already have a number of attacking players in the same position, including Giovani Lo Celso, Steven Bergwijn and Alli.

And unless Mourinho can shift one, the likelihood of Lingard joining remains slim.

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, it is largely dependant on whether or not The Special One can offload Alli.

The former MK Dons star has suffered from a steep decline after a horror year that saw him suffer from injuries and poor form. With the arrival of Gareth Bale, there is no room for Alli and the club are trying to get him out before the transfer window ends.

Paris St-Germain are the most interested in his services with club officials keen on a deal.

Real Madrid had been notified but are opting against a transfer with their own house to get in order in terms of outgoing players.
