Is Auba making a u-turn on his Arsenal commitment?

Barcelona have not given up on their chances of signing Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

However, the player has already committed his future to the club at North London.

“I would also like to react to some of the rumours that are going around about me in the media,” he told the match day programme before the match against Leeds.

“People like making up stories and they should focus on what’s happening on the pitch. They talk too much and it does my head in! I am the Arsenal captain.

“I love this club. I am committed to it and desperate to bring it back to the top, where it belongs.”

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta also gave his opinion.

“I was very pleased to read those comments,” Arteta said.

“He knows exactly what I think about him and obviously he is a massive player for us.

“But at the moment we are in the middle of the season and we have not discussed anything further on that.

“My intention is to keep Auba because I know that if we keep Auba with us, we are going to be stronger and closer to winning football matches.”

Arteta was further asked if Aubameyang will be getting an extension.

“I don’t know. We have not discussed that but I am confident that he is very happy here because that is what he said.”
