The Gunners’ recent signing is desperate to see his new club tie a prized asset down to fresh terms.

Willian has further stated that Arsenal

have to keep hold of star player, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and that the striker’s continued presence at Emirates Stadium is “very important” to him.

Aubameyang has enhanced his reputation as one of Europe’s most prolific front-men since swapping Borussia Dortmund for Arsenal in January 2018.

The Gabon international and superstar has scored an impressive 70 goals in 109 appearances for the Gunners, 29 of which were recorded during the 2019-20 campaign.

Aubameyang only has one year left to run on his current contract, and has been linked with a potential move to either Barcelona or Manchester United in recent months.

Goal has reported that Arsenal have reached an agreement with the centre-forward over an extension, but a final announcement over his future is unlikely to be forthcoming until the club’s pre-season camp gets underway on August 22.

Willian, who moved to the Emirates on a free transfer after leaving Chelsea earlier this month, has talked up how integral Aubameyang is to the Gunners’ hopes of competing for more major honours while expressing his hope that his new team-mate remains in north London beyond 2021.

The Brazilian midfielder told The Sun:

“I joined Arsenal because we can challenge for titles but Pierre will be a big part of the plan. He has to stay — it is very important to me.”

“This is a guy who gets 25-30 goals a season and we have to keep a player like that. He’s one of the best players in our team and somebody I want to be making chances for.”
