Mikel Arteta has confirmed that winning the FA Cup is a key ingredient to convince Aubameyang to stay with the Gunners.

The Spaniard revealed earlier that the Gabonese contract talk is one of the insecurities the club is handling and is looking forward for the Gabonese contract extension soon.

Arsenal will play Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday, August 1, 2020, in the FA Cup final after Aubameyang’s brace in both halves gave the Gunners the superiority over Guardiola’s side following a luminous play to deny the champions defending for the title once more.



We have to respect Aubameyang's timings - Mikel Arteta on the Gabonese contract extension


When asked whether he fears the FA Cup final game might be Auba's last in an Arsenal shirt, he vehemently replied, “No, I don't have that fear” expounding that the final is a proposal to convince the 31- year old that his future lies at the Emirates.

“What I said is it's a package at the end. You need a lot of ingredients on the table to persuade a player of his level to be at this football club,” Arteta said.

“Don't forget that he still has a contract here with us. We wanted to keep him and do it in a more long-term way but at the moment he's with us and I think he should be really proud of where he is as well,” he added.
