Arsenal working on new deals, reveals Unai Emery

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has revealed the club is working on new deals for forwards Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubamayeng. 

Earlier reports had suggested that the pair had signed new deals on transfer deadline day but the club but later the claims were dismissed. And now Emery says the duo is in talks with the club over contract extensions. 

"They are very important players and their contracts need to be in the same balance,” he said. 

“It’s one circumstance, one issue now, that the club is working on. 

“Edu [technical director] is here for that reason. There's also Raul [Sanllehi] and Huss [Fahmy], working with the players for that. It’s important for them, but my focus is on preparing the matches, each training session and making sure the players are focused and concentrated for us and on the work.”

Auba’s deal with the north London side is set to expire in the summer of 2021 while Lacazette is committed to the club until 2022 having signed for five years when he joined from Lyon in 2017.
