Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has confessed that he is at a turning point in his career and that he has a difficult decision to make about his future.
The Gabon international’s contract at the North London club is set to expire in June 2021 and with no signs yet on whether or not he will extend his stay, the Gunners could be forced to sell their star player in coming weeks or risk losing him for free.
“I haven’t had an offer recently, but I did speak to the club quite a few months ago, and they know why nothing has happened yet,” Aubameyang told French football programme Telefoot as per SuperSport.com.
“They have the keys. It is up to them to do their work and, after that, we will see how things go. It’s a turning point in my career and I want to be honest with everyone. It’ll certainly be a very difficult decision to make.”
Aubameyang, who turns 31 years old later this week, has scored 61 goals in 97 matches for Arsenal since joining the club from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018.
Arsenal face second-placed Manchester City on Wednesday in what will be the first round of English Premier League fixtures in three months, this after the league was suspended due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
