Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ready to part ways with Gunners as he pulls out of contract talks
Aubameyang has pulled out of conversations with the club over the extension of his contract that is about to expire, and the Gunners captain is eager to depart Emirates Stadium next summer.
The Gabonese striker has made 83 appearances, and scoring 53 goals for Arsenal since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018.
Having won the Premier League golden boot last season, Auba has once more scored goals this term, with 12 in 17 so far despite the North Londoners’ miserable start to the campaign.
Aubaneyang have just 18 months left out of his contract, but the situation of the striker led the club chiefs into confusion, whether to sell him next summer or let him enter the final year of his contract and risk leaving on a free if there is no development at the Emirates.
The ex-Dortmund striker who before joining Arsenal from the Bundesliga cost Gunners £56 million to seal the deal, is deeply frustrated with the club going backwards and wants to win trophies with the club.
The 30-year old striker was recently giving the armband to replace Granit Xhaka as Arsenal captain by the club due to his feelings for the club, because its generally assumed Aubameyang wants to be competing for silverware and also featuring in the Champions League.
Arsenal currently are 10th on the table after losing to Brighton on Thursday night as Ljungberg takes charge of his first home game as the interim manager.

The club’s bosses hoped that Ljungberg will have the new manager bounce but unfortunately, he failed, so they have to show up their search for a new permanent manager.
4 wins out of their 15 league matches this season and the coachless Gunners are already struggling 10 points behind the top four.
The North London based club are set to visit the London Stadium as they set to battle West ham on Monday, which will decide whether they will still go low or up the table
