Arsenal legend Ian Wright has pleaded with Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to sign a new contract and stay at the club. Aubameyang has been linked with an exit from the Emirates as his current deal runs out in the summer of 2021.

Barcelona are among some of Europe’s heavy hitters keeping tabs on the star striker, who has netted a whopping total of 20 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions this season.
The Gabon international also got on the scoresheet on Thursday’s 2-1 loss to Olympiakos with a marvellous overhead kick during extra time.
But the ex-Borussia Dortmund star missed a glorious opportunity at the death that would have granted Arsenal qualification to the last 16 of the Europa League.
The 30-year-old ace was very disappointed after the result but managed to regroup as he took to Instagram to thank the fans for their support and promised them that he will bounce back.

“Season’s Not over yet we’ll fight as a Team Till the end.”

Arsenal’s elimination from the Europa League came as a major shock especially after Mikel Arteta’s men won 1-0 in the first leg with Alexandre Lacazette’s winner.
However, Olympiakos opened the scoring with Pape Abou Cisse’s thunderous header before Aubameyang’s brilliant equaliser.
However, Youssef El Arabi picked up a brilliant cross by Giorgos Masouras and stunned the Emirates a minute before Aubameyang’s unbelievable miss.
