Arsenal captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed that the club is yet to offer him a new contract and concedes a decision over his future may be the biggest of his career.
The Gabonese international will turn 31 on June 18, with his contract due to expire in the summer of 2021 at the Emirates, says he is facing a turning point in his career.
Speaking with Téléfoot, Aubameyang said he is yet to be offered new terms by the Gunners.
“I haven’t had any offers recently, of course, but I did speak to the club quite a few months ago, and they know why nothing has happened yet.
“The ball is in their court now, so it’s down to them to do their bit and we’ll see how it goes.
“As I’ve said, 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 and I haven’t yet made it.
“We’ll see. I think it might be the most important choice of my career.”
Aubameyang joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018 for a then club-record fee of £56 million and says he is hungry to win trophies, whether or not he decides to extend his stay in North London beyond next season.
“Every competitive player dreams of winning trophies,” he added.
“It’s important. People will ask, ‘Does he want to win them at Arsenal or somewhere else?’
“As I said, time will tell. The ball is in the club’s court.
“I certainly want to win trophies and everyone knows that. Regardless of my choice, I’ll keep fighting to win trophies.”
Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal will restart the season on Wednesday against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium before traveling to face Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday evening.
