Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has delivered a strong message to Arsenal amid the ongoing uncertainty over his future at The Emirates.
The Gabon superstar has been a shining light in what has otherwise been a bleak few years for The Gunners.
Operating at almost two goals every three games since his arrival, Aubameyang has lived up to expectations.
However, Aubameyang is at a crossroads in his career with just 12 months remaining on his contract.
A recent report detailed one controversial way in which Arsenal could raise the funds to tie the striker down. But a host of European heavyweights have all been reported to be monitoring the situation.
Now, the 30-year-old has reiterated his stance amid the uncertainty, and revealed he is yet to receive an offer from the club in recent times.
“I haven’t recently received a proposition but of course there have been discussions with the club,” he told French outlet Telefoot (via The Metro).
“It’s them [the club] who have the keys and for them to do their work. Afterwards we will see what happens.
“It is a turning point in my career. I have been very frank with everyone. It will be of course a very difficult decision to make.
“It is possibly the most important decision of my career. But so far nothing has been decided.”
Aubameyang’s future ambitions
Arsenal are in the midst of a rebuild under young boss Mikel Arteta, and the prospect of winning titles appears to be far away.
At 30 years old, time is running out for Aubameyang to lift major silverware – something he is acutely aware of.
“Of course [I see titles in the future],” he said.
“Every player that is a competitor dreams of winning titles. Everyone will then ask the question if you would like to win at Arsenal or win elsewhere.
“As I said, it is the future that will tell us that. But I want to win titles. That is clear and everybody knows it.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal have reportedly snatched an agreement for a €60m-rated defensive ace.
