Arsenal legend Ian Wright says it’s vital that the club tie Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang down to a new deal because the striker would be the Gunners’ ‘best signing’ this summer.

The 31-year-old is believed to have agreed a new three-year deal with the club but it’s yet to be announced, which has left supporters worrying over his future.

The Gabon international kicked off his campaign with a goal against Fulham in Arsenal’s 3-0 win at Craven Cottage on Saturday and Mikel Arteta confirmed afterwards that he’s hopeful of a deal being agreed in the near future.

However, while the wait goes on many will be fearing that Aubameyang could run his deal down and Wright says it’s imperative that the club announce an extension soon.

Speaking to Match of the Day, Wright said: ‘He will be their best signing.

‘I’m going to go and see papa Aubameyang tomorrow. They have to sign him. It’s as simple as that.’

Alan Shearer then asked him: ‘Will you take him the contract yourself?’.

Wright replied: ‘If I have to! We have to sign that guy.’

Arsenal’s win took the Gunners to the top of the table after an impressive win against Scott Parker’s side.

Aubameyang’s strike partner, Alexandre Lacazette, got on the scoresheet alongside new boy Gabriel.
