Mikel Arteta has a lot of work to do if he is to lead the Gunners into a rebuild successfully.
The team’s overall lackluster display throughout the season suggests that the squad is in need of a quality addition or two.
However, if there’s one man from the current team Arteta could extensively rely on to guide the Arsenal team to glory in the future, it would be the captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gabonese international provided 17 goals in the Premier League before the season came to a halt amid the pandemic. The club would undoubtedly look to hold on to a player of his calibre.
Despite the rumors suggesting a move away from the London club, recent weeks have shed some light on Aubameyang’s future.
Both Aubameyang’s dad and Auba himself have provided hints over a possible contract extension via their social media activity.
It leaves the Arsenal faithful praying that their captain finally puts ink to the contract extension papers.
And, if the Gunners’ official Insta page is any evidence, Aubameyang might have answered the fans’ call.
Arsenal’s Instagram handle has released four posts starring their star striker over the past 12 hours.
Fans on Twitter smell an Aubameyang propaganda going on from the account. Some suggest that a contract extension might be on the cards for the Gabonese.
Look at this Auba prop man. I believe that the ting has been, or will be, signed. ✅ pic.twitter.com/oJHx83ydSV— LacaZte. (@LacaZte) May 12, 2020

Given that Arsenal’s main man up-front decides to stay at the club, Arteta would certainly have one less thing to worry about in the upcoming season.
