Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has said he is at a ‘turning point’ in his career, with speculation continuing to link the Arsenal captain with a move away from the club.

It was suggested earlier this month that the 30-year-old had been offered a new deal to extend his stay in north London, though the Gabon international has denied that to be the case, while also admitting he is keen to ‘fight for titles’ and that a decision of whether to stay or go will be ‘very difficult’.

“But, as I said, the future will tell us. As I have said already, the club has the keys to this. I am hungry to win titles, and whatever my decision, I intend to fight to win titles. To be clear, nothing has been decided.”
