Arsenal determined to keep Aubameyang away from Chinese attempts

Arsenal are determined to hold onto Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang amid Chinese Premier League interest.

The London Evening Standard says the 29-year-old striker has two years remaining on his current contract and plans are in place to offer him an extension, which would include an increase on his current £190,000-a-week wage.

Arsenal believe Aubameyang is settled in north London and has shown no signs of wanting to force a move.

However, two Chinese clubs are hopeful that could change. Guangzhou Evergrande and Shanghai SIPG are keen on signing Aubemeyang, who turns 30 later this month.

Tianjin Quanjian had agreed a £71million deal with Borussia Dortmund six months before he left the Bundesliga club to join Arsenal in January of last year, but it is unclear if they would bid again.
