Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's future at the Emirates has been a topic of discussion for some time now and the Gabonese has reportedly agreed to sign a further deal for another three years.
The Mirror are reporting that the 31-year-old has agreed to a new three year deal at the Emirates that will see him earn £250,000 weekly.
Aubameyang who has attracted interests with several clubs in Europe is now in his final year of his contract with the Gunners, but reports say Barcelona are desperate to land the striker.
And now the Gabonese is set to commit his future to the North London club with an increment of about £70,000-a-week more than the contract he signed with the club in 2018.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has made it clear that he wants the striker to remain with the club and he possibly hinted that the player has agreed when he tweeted the hourglass emoji on Sunday, August 16.
Many believed the tweet meant Aubameyang was on the cusp of signing a new deal and the Daily Telegraph reports he is now "extremely close" to doing so.
Aubameyang was Arsenal's top scorer across all competitions last season, netting 29 times and also providing three assists.
Meanwhile, Arsenal on Friday, August 14, announced the signing of Brazilian winger Willian on a free transfer and the 32-year-old will receive £220,000 weekly
The Gunners are now at a risk of backlash having just made 55 staff redundant after the 2019/20 Premier League season.
According to Daily Mail, Willian's huge weekly wage is made up of a signing on fee, loyalty payments and other bonuses.
