    Mikel Arteta hails Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after his Community Shield heroics

    ‘Big games, big moments, big players’: Mikel Arteta hails Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after his Community Shield heroics as he admits again that star man is ‘close’ to sealing new deal

    • Mikel Arteta has lavished praise on Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 
    • The forward netted the opener and decisive penalty in the Community Shield 
    • Arteta believes Aubameyang is again thriving on the pressure in big games 
    • It was also revealed that Arsenal are ‘close’ to tying Aubameyang to a new deal 

    Mikel Arteta has once again lavished praise on Arsenal superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – and claimed that the talisman is now ‘close’ to penning a new contract.

    The 31-year-old has been crucial to Arteta’s rebuilding project, and his future appears destined to remain at the Emirates after several strong hints that he will put pen to paper.

    After his heroics helped Arsenal win the Community Shield against Liverpool, Arteta has again reassured supporters over Aubameyang’s future and hailed his main man.

    Sportsmail understands that Aubameyang has verbally agreed to sign the fresh terms for another three years following lengthy talks.

    The extension, which will be worth in excess of £250,000-per-week, is still to be officially confirmed however – although the forward’s stellar display at Wembley underlined his value.

    His opener in the first-half was superb. Bukayo Saka’s clever pass was picked up by Aubameyang, who raced at Neco Williams and teed himself up on his right boot. The finish was unerring, bending beyond Alisson and into the far corner.

    And after his penalty stole the show for Arsenal again, Arteta told BT Sport: ‘Big games, big moments, big players. He is responding really well to that kind of pressure.

    ‘He was magnificent in the FA Cup final and again today.’ 

    Aubameyang had inspired Arsenal to their FA Cup triumph just four weeks ago, having delivered match-winning shows against both Manchester City and Chelsea.

    His effort against Liverpool ensured that the early months of Arteta’s promising reign have now been marked with two trophies.

    The red-hot attacker also capitalised ruthlessly on Rhian Brewster’s missed spot-kick in a tense shootout on Saturday to send the first piece of silverware up for grabs this season to north London. 

    Aubameyang appears to be relishing the prospect of staying at the club, telling BT Sport: ‘We are improving and there’s still work to do but it’s a really happy and exciting time to be an Arsenal player.’
