The Gabon international has been a world class performer for the club and it’s vital they were able to keep hold of him as they look to continue rebuilding under exciting young manager Mikel Arteta.

Speaking to Arsenal legend Ian Wright in the video below, Aubameyang admits that Arteta told him he can leave to win more trophies elsewhere, but one key word convinced him to stay at the Emirates Stadium…

Aubameyang says Arteta told him he can build a “legacy” at Arsenal, and Wright seemed to very much agree that the 31-year-old has what it takes to be a Gunners legend.

Arteta deserves immense credit for being able to persuade such a big name to gamble and stay at Arsenal for the final years of his career when he could surely have starred for almost any top team in the world.

  1. Big up to Arteta, we now urge you to go get Thomas and Aouar to Arsenal then we shall have nothing to ask for this season. Thereby only trophies wait coming to Arsenal.

  2. Beautiful conversation & good to see two greats attached to the club emotionally. And agree with Wright. Both Alex Sanchez & Robin V missed that opportunity to be a legend. Ofcourse in sports trophies are important but they need to come with the team you get your recognition . Both VP & AS got their recognition(as best players) from Aresenal but they left the club!!

  3. I also support that Auba stays at the club to build his name because if he goes to another club, he will not be recognized

  4. As things are going on my opinion Arteta most be man to bring back glory for arsenal ,because he has all the quality in him.
