Arsenal are set to make Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the club’s highest earner with a new bumper contract.

Speculation has been rife regarding the Gabonese striker’s future, who has just a year left on his current Emirates Stadium deal.

Aubameyang had been linked with a summer switch away from North London, with Barcelona reportedly interested in the 31-year-old who has plundered a prolific 71 goals in 110 appearances since arriving at Arsenal in January 2018.

Now the Gunners’ master marksman looks set to stay at the club for a further three years, making him the best-paid player at the club in the process.

The Athletic’s David Ornstein has suggested that fresh terms for Auba are ‘imminent’, with the new contract worth more than Mesut Ozil’s alleged £350,000 per-week wage.

It’s also claimed that the player’s relationship with manager Mikel Arteta has been key in getting the deal over the line, with former Gunners director Raul Sanllehi said to have negotiated the majority of the deal before his recent departure.
