Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has reportedly given Arsenal the only condition that will make him remain at the Emirates Stadium.

Although the Gabonese star has a deal with the Gunners until the summer of 2021, he has however been linked with a move away from the club.

Top European clubs including Real Madrid have been monitoring the former Borussia Dortmund's progress.

Aubameyang has now told the north London side to give him a new contract to the tunes of £300,000-a-week and watch him change his mind about leaving the club.

Metro UK revealed that Arsenal has opened talks with the striker over a chance to extend his stay at the Emirates Stadium.

The 30-year-old has been superb for his Premier League side this campaign - scoring 25 goals in 31 appearances across competitions.

Reports from the player's camp claim he wants to join a club where he can win silverware - including the Champions League.

Meanwhile, the forward insists earlier this week that winning titles will not define his career, adding that he will defend his team.

"I’m a striker so I will defend my side – I don’t think you need trophies to be a top striker,’ he told Sky Sports.

"Of course, it can help you but we’ve seen a lot of great players that didn’t win trophies but we respect them because of their quality. ‘You don’t need to win trophies but if you win it, it’s better.’
