English business tycoon Simon Jordan believes the Gunners need to tie the Gabon forward down at the Emirates rather than let him leave.

Aubameyang should be priority for Arsenal and they must get him to sign a new contract, according to former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan.

The 30-year old’s future at the club has been under heavy speculation, with the Gunners lack of success on the pitch, a perceived frustration.

Aubameyang’s contract ends in the summer of 2021 and should he fail to strike an improved deal, he will be heading out of north London for free.

“For him [Aubameyang] to go for free, having paid the best part of £60m for him, doesn’t make any sense,” Jordan told talkSPORT .

“I think they’ve got to try and get this boy to sign.

“He’s been there for two years and it’s perplexing to me why he’s not on a four-year contract anyway.” 

Aubameyang has been the Gunners top scorer this season..with his 14 league goals showing just how immense he is for the club.
