Ian Wright has sent a passionate plea to Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, begging him to sign a new contract and stay at the Emirates.

Former Borussia Dortmund forward Aubameyang has been linked with a move away from the club, with his contract expiring at the end of next season.

Barcelona are among the sides thought to be interested in the Gabon international, 30. who has scored 20 goals in the Premier League and Europa League this season.

He was on the scoresheet again in a shock defeat to Olympiacos but missed a glorious opportunity at the death that would have stopped his side crashing out of the Europa League.

Aubameyang took to Instagram a day later and wrote: ‘I Woke up This Morning praying as usual and i thanks God for what he gave me.

‘An incredible Family and you Fans are part of it 🙏🏽 thanks for all the messages and the love i received since yesterday.

‘Football is great Even if he gives you sometimes Strange emotions but i Take it as a lesson again and keep my head up Season’s Not over yet 🙏🏽we’ll fight as a Team Till the end.’

Arsenal legend Ian Wright was quick to respond to Aubameyang and begged him to stay beyond his current deal.

‘We love you!!! This club loves you. Our fans love you,’ Wright wrote.
