Arsenal reportedly rejected offers for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from 'two big clubs' this summer.

Arsenal reportedly rejected offers for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from 'two big clubs' before signing the Gabon international to a new three-year contract.

The 31-year-old ended the speculation surrounding his future when he penned a new deal with the Gunners on Tuesday, and he is now contracted to Mikel Arteta's side until June 2023.

The attacker was strongly linked with a move away from the Gunners towards the back end of last season, with Barcelona thought to be in the hunt for his signature.

According to Sky Sports News, 'there were two major offers' for Aubameyang from 'two big clubs' during this summer's transfer window, but Arsenal managed to convince their captain to commit his future to the club.

The former AC Milan youngster enjoyed an excellent 2019-20 campaign at club level, scoring 29 times in 44 appearances in all competitions.

Aubameyang has also started this season with two goals in two appearances, netting against Liverpool in the Community Shield before registering against Fulham in the Premier League.
