Arsenal fans are desperately hoping that Raul Sanllehi will be able to strike a deal with Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, according to the Telegraph

Aubameyang is said to be waiting for the Arsenal chief to offer him a contract, as he ponders his future.

The £56 million Arsenal star (BBC Sport) has just under a year remaining on his current deal, which puts his future into doubt.

But Arsenal have hope that they could keep Aubameyang with the latest reports suggesting that Mikel Arteta is now optimistic that his side can keep the Gabonese international in North London.

And Arsenal fans have suggested that Sanllehi could be able to produce a masterstroke by getting Aubameyang to agree new terms.

Aubameyang staying could be crucial to Arsenal’s chances over the coming years.

Replacing him would be practically impossible, as he has scored with such reliability over a number of seasons.

Arsenal are working on a limited budget, and finding a striker of Aubameyang’s quality elsewhere would be a hugely difficult task for Arteta in what will be his first summer transfer window in charge.
