Aubameyang would warrant £500,000-a-week contract at Arsenal - Groves


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Arsenal 2019-20

Former Arsenal attacker Perry Groves believes Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could warrant a£500,000-a-week contract after his FA Cup final heroics.

The match was deemed crucial in Arsenal's hopes of convincing Aubameyang to re-sign, with his current contract set toexpire next year.

Manager Mikel Arteta has made no secret of his desire to keep the striker in his squad and recently declared he could become a club legend if he remains long-term at the Emirates.

Aubameyang himself refused to address his immediate future after the FA Cup final with Groves admitting he wouldn't be worried if Arsenal had to offer a huge weekly salary in order to secure his services, noting that some players are worth it.

"I don't care as an Arsenal fan, and I know we're in difficult financial times, if they said Aubameyang is on£400,000,£500,000 a week, it wouldn't bother me at all because some players warrant it," Groves told TalkSPORT.

"Some players warrant it and he does because he delivers. Fans get the hump with players that get a lot of money and don't deliver and don't look like they care."

Groves, who labelled Mesut Ozil '"selfish" for not taking part in Arsenal's decisive FA Cup clash against Chelsea, believes the Gunners' triumph in the competition means more than finishing second in the Premier League.

"I think your club's history is made by the trophies you win," Groves said.

"I’d rather win the FA Cup than finish second in the Premier League because those players there, they have now embellished themselves on Arsenal's history.Arsenal fans will remember that game and that group of players.

"If you come second, third or fourth in the leagueno-one really remembers you - you're not part of the fabric of that football club."
