Mikel Arteta was significant in influencing Aubameyang to stay at Arsenal

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was linked to a move, and among others, Barcelona and Inter showed their interest in the player, but Mikel Arteta was crucial in persuading him to stay.

Manager Mikel Arteta has been cited as a key factor in him deciding to stay at Emirates Stadium, while he had chances to leave Arsenal.

Earlier this month in north London, Aubameyang penned a three-year extension to end mounting speculation.

Aubameyang admitted he was tempted by a new challenge and among the elite European clubs, Barcelona and Inter were linked to the 31-year-old.

“I was thinking about it to tell you the truth because I had good opportunities as well,” he told Sky Sports.

“But this feeling to be here – the love from the fans and all the club – I’m not sure that by leaving I will receive the same love, so that’s why I’m staying.”

“I’m really proud to be the captain but it’s not the biggest factor to stay. Of course, it’s a great job to do but it was not a part of me staying here.”
