Arsenal offer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang new mega-contract and is now willing to pay him £300,000-a-week to stay at the club, reports claim.

The Gabon International has enjoyed another fruitful season in front of the post, firing his side to the glory of the FA Cup with a brace against Chelsea at Wembley, while in the dressing room he is a key member.

Aubameyang, however, has less than a year left on his contract and Arsenal feels they’ll need to sell their top scorer if he doesn’t commit to fresh terms – rather than risk losing him for nothing.

Mikel Arteta is reluctant to give up the 31-year-old and Arsenal’s hierarchy is ready to back their manager, with The Times claiming a lucrative new deal has been offered.

Aubameyang will earn more than £300,000 a week including bonus payments in his proposed new contract, up from the base salary of £200,000 a week he currently earns.

The forward will also receive a one-off bonus of £ 300,000 due to a clause of his new deal allowing him to score or assist at least 25 goals – a milestone he achieved on the final day of the season in the Premier League.

The new deal would make Aubameyang Arsenal’s second-highest earner behind only Mesut Ozil, though this summer the Gunners would ideally like to offload the German. In addition to the enormous wage, Arteta hopes the success growth of Arsenal and the triumph of the FA Cup has shown Aubameyang that he can achieve everything he desires at the north London club and embed himself into the history of the club.

Talking about his striker after Wembley’s win, Arteta said: ‘We’ve always had great strikers at this football club and Auba deserves to be called and compared to the big names. ‘He’ll get closer to that by winning tournaments and the longer he remains there too. Hopefully, we could have him for longer.’
