Following reports that the star striker tpld club officials he is interested in leaving Arsenal, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang insists he remains committed to Arsenal and will not seek to quit the club in the January transfer window. The 30-year-old has just under 18 months remaining on his current contract and is reportedly reluctant to sign a new deal with the Gunners facing an uphill battle to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

The former Borussia Dortmund striker, who has scored 15 goals in all competitions this term in spite of Arsenal’s woeful form, starred in last night’s 2-0 win over Manchester United and afterwards hit out at speculation he is ready to quit the north London club. He told RMC: ‘The English press likes to talk a lot. For now, I’m here. I’m 100% here.’
