Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has said that any reports linking him with a move away from the Emirates Stadium this month are not true.
“I would also like to react to some of the rumours that are going around about me in the media,” the Gunners star wrote in his program notes ahead of his side’s FA Cup game against Leeds United, as reported by Sky Sports.
“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.”
Arsenal look unlikely to qualify for the Champions League again this season, which will surely frustrate some of the club’s senior players.
Gunners manager Mikel Arteta has however made it clear that his side are not interested in selling Aubameyang this month.
Aubameyang is one of the best players in the Arsenal setup and it would be a major blow if the club were to lose him.
The 30-year-old joined the North London club during the January transfer window in 2018 and has since managed to go on and score 45 league goals from 70 games.
Aubameyang has also managed to net 13 goals in the Premier League this season from 20 games.
It is quite evident that Arsenal need to make some signings if they want to improve as a club.
Arteta has had a positive impact since taking over as the Gunners manager but the London side need to invest if they are to break back into the Premier League’s top four.
