Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has said that his future at the club remains with the club, and whatever decision it will make, is “a turning point in my career and I want to be honest with everyone."

The 30-year-old current contract runs out in June 2021, and as the transfer window nears Barcelona and Inter Milan have expressed interested to sign him.

"I haven't had an offer recently, but I did speak to the club quite a few months ago, and they know why nothing has happened yet," said Aubameyang during an interview with Telefoot.

Aubameyang added: "Arsenal have the keys. It is up to them to do their work and, after that, we will see how things go. It'll certainly be a very difficult decision to make."

The Gabon international has scored 61 goals in 97 appearances for the Gunners since he joined the club in 2018 from Borussia Dortmund.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta had earlier hinted at keeping him "under any circumstances" after the club discussion on a new deal with the captain before the end of the season, reports BBC Sports

Arsenal are ninth placed in the table and travel to second-placed Manchester City when the Premier League restarts on Wednesday.
