Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang repeats he enjoys his life at Arsenal, insisting he wants to help the club return to its glory days amid exit links
Recently linked with the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Inter Milan, Aubameyang has yet to extend his ongoing contract with Arsenal, which is due to expire in 2021.
The Gunners captain seemed destined to leave at Emirates Stadium following Arsenal’s dip in form under Unai Emery and Freddie Ljungberg, but things are improving since Mikel Arteta’s arrival.
Arteta registered his first triumph in charge of the north London outfit, beating Manchester United 2-0 in a massive Premier League showdown on New Year’s Day.
During the post-match interview, Aubameyang has revealed his desire to remain at Arsenal, insisting he wants to drag his team up to the top-four.
Now, in the build-up to the Gunners’ Carabao Cup clash against Leeds United, the 30-year-old striker has reiterated his commitment to the red shirt.

“I would also like to react to some of the rumors that are going around about me in the media, Aubameyang told the club’s official matchday program, as reported by the Daily Mail.
“People like making up stories, and they should focus on what’s happening on the pitch. They talk too much, and it does my head in!

The Gabon international enjoys another prolific season with Arsenal, having scored 15 goals in 25 appearances in all competitions so far this campaign.
Thirteen of those goals have come in the Premier League, which sees him trailing Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy by four goals at the top of the goalscoring chart.
