Mikel Arteta has not given up hope of persuading captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to stay at Arsenal as the striker weighs up his options this summer.

Aubameyang is entering the final year of his current contract at Emirates Stadium and is yet to agree fresh terms.

The forward has held talks with Arsenal over a new deal, but has so far not been made a formal contract offer.

Aubameyang, who will turn 31 on Thursday, is currently weighing up his options and is attracting interest from Barcelona, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

Arteta wants the Gabon international to stay at Arsenal and he has not given up hope of persuading him to remain at the club.

The Spaniard views Aubameyang as having a key role in his rebuild at Arsenal, both on and off the pitch.

The forward has already scored 20 goals this season and he is a strong voice in a young dressing room, as shown by the fact it was Aubameyang who contacted Arteta last week to help organise Arsenal’s show of support for the Black Lives Matter movement ahead of their friendly with Brentford.

As a result Arteta is determined to press on in his attempts to keep Aubameyang at Arsenal, with a strong end to the season likely to be important.

Aubameyang is keen to win trophies as his career draws to a close and needs to be convinced the Gunners will be challenging for honours in coming seasons.
