According to The Sun, the Gabon international is currently earning £180 000 (R3.8 million) a week in wages, and the Premier League outfit is reluctant to let its top goalscorer leave as a free agent.

Arsenal's head of football Raul Sanllehi has reportedly stated that the club will do its utmost to prevent players from running down their contracts without any resale value.

Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Petr Cech and Danny Welbeck are among many high-profile players who have left the Emirates Stadium in recent years as contract renewals were either rejected or not forthcoming.

With Aubameyang's contract set to expire on 30 June 2021, and the coronavirus pandemic influencing many clubs' finances, it is believed the Gunners would agree to a fee of £20 million for the player who turns 31 in two weeks' time, as per The Sun.

Boasting an impressive record of 61 goals in 97 appearances across all competitions since his move from Borussia Dortmund to London in 2018, the African superstar has made mention of his desire to finish his career at the highest level and among Europe's elite.
