The Gunners’ attacker has seen transfer speculation built recently but insists that, with the January window open, he is not considering a move
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang responded to speculation by suggesting that he may soon be leaving Arsenal stating that he is “100% here”.
Rumors about the Gabon striker’s future have steadily increased in recent weeks.
The January transfer window is now open, with the possibility that official approaches can be made before the end of the month.
The giants of the Barcelona La Liga are among those who had been connected with Aubameyang, while the Serie A title hopes that Inter will be another of its pretenders.
It is easy to understand why the thirty-year-old frontman would attract admiring glances from afar.
Since moving to England in the winter of 2018, a prolific presence has recorded 56 goals in 90 appearances.
These efforts have not been enough to free Arsenal from the chains that continue to hold them.
With the Gunners struggling to make progress, it has been suggested that Aubameyang could open up to a new challenge in a club where ambition can be matched.
He has, however, tried to refute claims that a step is imminent, with no plan on his part to take a step in early 2020.
Questioned about the exit speech that developed around him after appearing in a 2-0 win over Manchester United on Wednesday, Aubameyang said RMC Sport: “The English press likes to talk a lot.
“For now I’m here. I’m 100% here. “
It will be music for the ears of Arsenal supporters and the new manager of the club, Mikel Arteta.
The Gunners need everyone to pull in the same direction in which they try to get back on track.
A recent 2-0 win over Manchester United is considered a positive step in the right direction.

There remains a nine point gap between the top four in the Premier League, but this could be bridged if consistency could be found.
Aubameyang will play a starring role in the second half of the season as Arsenal captain and their most productive attack weapon.
The Gunners will hope that their determination to keep a precious resource will not be tested in the coming weeks, while the player himself does not seem to be in the mood to force the problem by approaching the departure hall.
