Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will have just one year left on his contract in the summer.
Arsenal head of football Raul Sanllehi has made it clear that any player going into the final year of their contract must sign a new deal or be sold. Will he stay true to his word?
If he does then Aubameyang has to either sign a new contract or will be placed on the transfer list.
Of course, he may just refuse and do what Mesut Ozil is doing and wait out his contract. But I get the feeling that the Gabonese hitman has more ambition than that and would rather seek a move. He would surely want to end his career playing Champions League football.
Also, he does not earn the same £350k per week that Ozil does.
Arsenal, however, may decide to allow him to see out his final year. This would be because they may see him as more valuable to the team for that year rather than risk whatever transfer fee they get for him on a new player that is far from guaranteed to be a success.
If they can, then Arsenal should sell the 30-year-old rather than lose yet another player on a free. They need to send a message to other players in the squad that they are serious about sticking to their new transfer policy.
He is one of the few assets that would enable the club to reinvest from his sale in new players.
What do you think Arsenal should do if Auba refuses to sign a new deal?
Should they keep him for another year and lose him for free but be guaranteed goals or cash in before it is too late?
