Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will become Arsenal’s highest paid player after signing a new contract with the club.

The Gabon international’s new deal was initially £250k-a-week but The Athletic has reported that he will now top Mezut Ozil’s £350k-a-week wages.

According to the Sun, no figure has been mentioned by the news outlet, only that his current £200k-a-week deal will be vastly improved.

Mikel Arteta is said to have been instrumental in negotiations, with the club’s former head of football Raul Sanllehi playing a huge part in talks before his departure.

An official statement of Aubameyang’s stay at the Emirates Stadium will likely be made before Arsenal’s opening premier league match against Fulham on Saturday.
