Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's future was one of the biggest talking points at Thursday’s press conference.
Our club captain addressed the transfer rumours surrounding him in Monday's matchday programme, and Mikel Arteta says he would love to keep the Gabon international in north London.
"I was very pleased to read those comments," our head coach said. "He knows exactly what I think about him and obviously he's a massive player for us. But at the moment we're in the middle of the season and we haven't discussed anything further on that at the club.
"My intention is to keep Auba obviously because I know that if we keep Auba with us, we're going to be stronger and closer to winning football matches. That's the only thing.
"I don't know [how confident I am that he will stay], we haven't discussed that. But I'm confident that he's very happy here because that's what he said in the media.”
