Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has finally penned a new contract at Arsenal after much deliberation, emojis and elaborate reveals from the Gunners’ social media admin.
While they faffed about for weeks getting everything ready, it hasn’t taken our trusty traders long to draw up a number of special markets focused on how well the Gabon forward will do over the course of his three-year deal.
And Paddy’s football experts think it’s ultimately going to be a frustrating time for Aubameyang as the most likely market in our specials is for him to never qualify for the Champions League while an Arsenal player.
And, if the buzz of picking up the FA Cup and Community Shield wears off by the end of this season, it’s second-most likely that he leaves The Emirates next summer.
There is some hope for Gooners however, as him winning the Premier League with Arsenal is the third-shortest option, according to our traders.
If you think Mikel Arteta really is the real deal, Arsenal to make rapid progress and finish in the top four with Aubameyang to be the EPL’s top scorer in 2020/21 is a pretty short price, all things considered.
The one thing you can guarantee with Aubameyang is goals and he’s sorter to fire 30 plus this season than he is to score more than newly-promoted Fulham or West Brom.
Much less likely is Aubameyang to pick up the Ballon d’Or while at The Emirates and for him to fire an amazing 35 goals or more this season.
We’ve also priced up Arsenal to win the 2020/21 English Premier League and Aubameyang to be top scorer as well as him to be the Premier League top scorer in each of the next three seasons, but you’re looking at a couple of long shots there.
However, at one time it looked like a long shot that he’d stay so maybe anything’s possible with Auba!
