LIVE Transfer News: Updates on Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal plus the latest rumors

Wright on Aubameyang

Ian Wright says Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang signing a new contract would be the Gunners’ best deal of the summer.

FA Cup winners have completed the capture of Brazilian duo Willian and £ 27m defender Gabriel Magalhaes, and coach Mikel Arteta wants at least two more new faces before the Premier League kick-off on 12 September.

But the Gunners Wright legend, who has scored 195 goals in 288 games for the club, believes keeping 31-year-old Aubameyang will be “imperative” if Arteta, who lifted the community shield following penalties against Liverpool over the weekend. , is enjoying further success.

Wright, speaking to ITV’s Good Morning Britain, said: “To be honest, I think it will be the most significant signing Mikel can make.

“We have to make it happen, simply because of what it brings to that team. When you look at the possibilities created for Arsenal, last year they were round of 16 in the league and he still scored the number of goals he scored.

“So, if you can imagine, we can start creating more with the players we have signed – the Willians and people like that – then he will score more goals. It is imperative that you sign. “
