Aubameyang laughs off signing new Arsenal contract during Instagram chat with KP Boateng

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has laughed off the idea of signing a new contract at Arsenal during a live chat with Kevin-Prince Boateng on Instagram.

The Gunners captain, 30, has just one year left on his current deal.

And to pass the time during the lockdown, Aubameyang allowed fans to fire questions at him during a live broadcast on his social media,

And when grilled by fans during his talk with Boateng, Aubameyang laughed at the idea of penning a new contract.

Seeing the influx of questions about his future roll in, Boateng said: “They’re [fans] all saying you should sign a new deal with Arsenal.

Tight-lipped Aubameyang simply replied: “Ah yeah, I know.”

When Boateng asked how long was left on his current deal, the Gabon star kept it brief, saying: “One year.”

Ferocious interviewer Boateng pushed further, asking if Aubameyang would commit his future to the Emirates by signing a new contract.

But Auba could only laugh, while saying: “Sure, sure…”

The Arsenal captain has scored 17 goals in 26 Premier League games this season – easily the club’s top scorer.

And boss Mikel Arteta is hoping to keep him at the club for the long-term.
But with just one year left on his current deal, should Aubameyang not show signs of wanting to sign a new deal, the Gunners may be forced to sell him so as to not lose him on a free.

Arsenal have become paranoid at the prospect of losing a star name for nothing after Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere slipped through their fingers.

Manchester United are just one interested party, while Real Madrid are hoping to use Dani Ceballos as bait to sign Auba.

Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are also keen on signing the former Borussia Dortmund superstar.
