Is Aubamayeng set to sign a new contract at Arsenal

According to reports, Arsenal’s prolific striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubamayeng, is close to signing a new contract with the club. The Gabonese striker’s current deal was due to expire at the end of the next season and speculation over his future has been on the headlines throughout the premier league campaign. He tweeted an hourglass yesterday and it increased speculation about him signing a new contract. Everyone’s favourite Sky Sports reporter, Fabrizio Romano, replied to this tweet and confirmed that he was going to sign a new contract that extends his stay at the club. Sky Sports from Italy also reports the new deal will be announced in a few days.


With constant pressure from Arsenal Fan TV (AFTV) cast members, it was evident that the fans really wanted him to stay. The phrase ‘sign dat ting’ has spammed social media platforms, a clear sign that they needed him to extend his contract. He has been a key player to the club and his contribution is of the best quality .He had an excellent personal season and scored 22 goals in the premier league just like he did in the previous season. Since joining the club he has scored 54 goals in 85 premier league games and joined the league of the fastest players to reach 50 PL goals.


The club captain scored two goals in their FA cup final against Chelsea leading, Mikel Arteta to lifting his first trophy as a manager. His stay at the club would be a big win for them, now that they have recently signed Willian from Chelsea on a three year deal.  Although the 31 year old might be staying, his closest friend at the club, Alexandre Lacazzette’s future isn’t clear on the club. The two have been quite the duo on and off the pitch but this partnership might not continue. The French forward has been linked with transfers to Juventus and Atletico Madrid and his future at Arsenal is quite unclear.

If Aubamayeng signs this new contract, he will be part of an attacking trio with Nicholas Pepe and Willian Borges and we will all love to see it.

Tight race for the English Golden boot

Tight race for the English Golden boot

With only a few games left, the battle for the golden boot in the premier league seems to get harder by every game week. At the top of the list is Jamie Vardy, Leicester City’s main man upfront, who has been quite prolific this season. He has scored 21 goals in 30 games and provided 4 assists and his contribution to the club has seen it strongly secure the third position in the league table. With a 0.7 goals per game ratio, Vardy has been quite consistent before the break and had a three game goal drought before he scored a brace in their previous game against Crystal Palace. This season he joined the list for players with 100 premier league goals and I believe he has got eyes for the golden boot.

At number two is, Pierre- Emerick Aubamayeng, Arsenal’s best forward who also happens to be the previous season’s golden boot holder. The Gabonese attacker has been in good form this season and joined the list of fastest premier league players to reach 50 premier league goals. With 19 goals in 31 games, two assists and a 0.61 goals per game ratio, Aubamayeng seems to be the only player who doesn’t get criticism in the club. The Gunners knight in shining armor, is potentially a golden boot winner this season and he is aware that it is game on. These two strikers meet tonight in Emirates Stadium at 10:15pm in a premier league clash, hoping one would score and increase their chance of winning the accolade.

At 18 goals is Danny Ings, Southampton’s forward who has had a surprisingly good season and a huge spell of individual brilliance .He is  among the contenders for the boot and still has a couple of games to increase his tally. At fourth position is Mohamed Salah, also last Season’s golden boot winner. At 17 goals, he hopes to defend his title making this race even harder. Sadio Mane, Liverpool’s winger and also last season’s golden boot winner, is at 16 goals tying with Mancity’s Sergio Aguero, whose injury has affected him and is out of season. Raul Jimenez from Wolves is tied at 15 goals with United’s Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
