Arteta ‘positive’ Aubameyang will stay at Arsenal as striker bags brace in 4-0 win over Norwich

    Mikel Arteta says he is ‘positive’ regarding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future at Arsenal after the forward scored twice in the club’s 4-0 thrashing of Norwich.

    Aubameyang became the fastest player in Arsenal history to reach 50 Premier League goals with a brace against the division’s bottom side, capitalising on two calamitous mistakes from the visitors to reach a half century of league goals in English football.

    Granit Xhaka and Cedric Soares were also on target as Arsenal made it three consecutive wins in all competitions, with Norwich now on the brink of an instant return to the second tier after losing each of their three fixtures since the restart.

    Arteta was pleased with his side’s display and praised the contribution of Aubameyang after his landmark double, and says he is hopeful the Gabon international will agree a new deal to remain at the Emirates with the forward having entered the final year of his contract.

    “The way he works everyday he decided to get better. Hopefully he’s here for longer,” Arteta told Sky Sports.

    “He can see what we are trying to do and hopefully he can evolve.”

    And on his star striker’s contract, he later continued: “I leave that to the football club.

    “Auba knows really well my thoughts towards him, the project I want to create and that I want him in that.

    “I am positive and I will remain positive but things have to progress.”

    Aubameyang refused to comment on his future when speaking to Sky Sports post-game, insisting his focus is on the club’s remaining fixtures as they bid to secure continental qualification.

    “We’ll see. We’ll talk with the club and see what happens. I’m really focused on the games.

    “Since Mikel is in we’re doing well. We’re working well. We have signs we’re improving.”

    Arsenal will hope to continue their recent momentum when they travel to face a Wolves side chasing Champions League qualification on Saturday evening.
