Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be in line for a bumper contract extension should the club qualify for the Champions League next season.

Matt Law at the Telegraph believes the two parties could reach an agreement in the near future with Raul Sanllehi trying to structure a new contract based on incentives – if they did make the Champions League then Aubameyang could earn as much as Mesut Ozil, the club’s best paid player, who is on around 350k-a-week.

The 30-year-old joined the club in a £56m move from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018 and has gone on to score 43 goals in 67 appearances for the Gunners.

A number of fans have been debating the latest news with many torn over whether or not the striker should be offered such a high wage.

Some have their doubts as Aubameyang will be 31 by the time next season comes around with one fan labelling the club ‘stupid’ and another said he wasn’t sure if the club should be offering someone that age a 350k-per-week deal.

Others believed the Gabon international was deserving of such a contract with one Gooner having complete faith in Sanllehi getting the correct deal over the line.

Here’s the best of the reaction:
