Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang avoids question on Arsenal future

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang refused to provide an update on his Arsenal future when quizzed in the immediate aftermath of his side's FA Cup success on Saturday night.

The Gabon international scored twice as the Gunners recorded a 2-1 win over Chelsea at Wembley, helping the club lift their 14th FA Cup trophy in the process.

The 31-year-old has therefore ended the 2019-20 campaign with 29 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions, including 22 in 36 Premier League outings.

Aubameyang's contract at the Emirates Stadium is due to expire next summer, and there remains a host of speculation surrounding his future, with a number of clubs thought to be interested in a move.

However, the experienced forward refused to be drawn on any potential summer plans in the aftermath of Saturday's victory.

"Nothing. Just today and the trophy. That's it!" Aubameyang told BBC Sport when asked whether he had a message for the club's supporters regarding his future.

Arsenal finished eighth in this season's Premier League table but will play Europa League football next term due to their FA Cup success.
