Aubameyang 'on brink' of agreeing new three-year Arsenal contract worth £250k a week after 'verbal promise' to stay

PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG is on the brink of signing a new three-year Arsenal deal, according to reports.

The Gunners striker is set to land a bumper pay packed in excess of £250,000 a week should he stay in North London.

The Telegraph report that "verbal promises" have been made between Aubameyang and Arsenal chiefs.

And now the final contract is being drawn up for the 31-year-old Gabon forward to sign.

Aubameyang, who scored both goals in Arsenal's 2-1 FA Cup final win over Chelsea, can also expect lucrative bonus clauses in his new deal.

The mega-money contract comes just a day after Arsenal announced they would be making 55 staff redundant as a result of coronavirus.

Gunners fan Piers Morgan was one of those to slam the decision which was made as Mesut Ozil continues to earn £350,000 a week.

Morgan tweeted: "Arsenal firing 55 staff when we're owned by a multi-billionaire, have just made £££ by winning the FA CUp and qualifying for Europe, and pay Mesut Ozil £350k-a-week to sit on his a***, is morally indefensible and not what I expect from a club with our heritage.

"Shameful decision."

Arsenal are owned by mega-rich American sports tycoon Stan Kroenke – whose net worth is £6.31billion.

Club legend Ian Wright was another absolutely fuming with the decision.

He replied to Arsenal's tweet announcing the news: "Remember who you are, what you are and who you represent!!!"

Arsenal will be getting the cheque book out again though as they near landing Willian on a £100,000-a-week deal.

The 31-year-old Brazilian looks set to swap Chelsea's Stamford Bridge for the Emirates after reports said he had "agreed" a move.

That transfer appeared to be leaked in a video promoting the new Pro Evo game, which showed Willian in an Arsenal shirt.
