Arteta said when asked if improved results might raise the likelihood of Aubameyang staying: “Hopefully not just the wins, but as well what we are trying to do.
“That he really enjoys on the pitch every time he goes, that he feels very much part of what we’re trying to build here. And I think he’s with that mindset at the moment.
“I think it’s been tough for him. You know a player like him, there’s been a lot of disappointments in the last few months and years because he has big expectations.
“You know he wants to play for the biggest club in the biggest tournaments, and be up there with the best players in the world.
“And we have to try to support him and give him everything at the club so he really feels fulfilled here. That’s the challenge I have.”
