The Gabonese striker is out of contract in 2021, but has been linked to a move elsewhere this summer amid interest from several elite clubs.
Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Man Utd are said to be monitoring Aubameyang’s situation, while Arsenal are desperately looking to tie him up for the long term.
And his father, Pierre-François, believes that the 30-year-old player should ignore any outside interest and put a paper on a new case in the Emirates.
In a message on his Instagram account, Aubameyang Snr posted a photo of his son signing his first contract with Arsenal in 2018, with the caption: “You know what to do bro @ aubameyang97. “
The post could be the first real indication that Aubameyang is now ready to commit to his future at Arsenal after several months of blocking his decision.
Aubameyang would like to increase his salary by £ 200,000 a week.
Arsenal are keen to keep their payroll low, but know they are facing difficulties as the club’s main supporter, Mesut Ozil, is on a £ 350,000 weekly contract.
The Gunners don’t want to end up in a similar situation to last summer when Aaron Ramsey was able to leave the club for free and are open to selling Aubameyang if they can’t convince him to sign new terms.
The Arsenal skipper has reservations about Arsenal’s ability to fight for major honors and qualify for the Champions League, and it assesses the approaches of potential contenders.
Interested clubs are aware that they can conclude Aubameyang on a reduced price deal this summer with Arsenal in a precarious position.

Gunner legend Charlie Nicholas urged Arsenal to pay Aubameyang whatever it wants.
“I would say, ‘Is it money, is it the salary you are looking for? Do we have to do to keep you? “Nicholas told Sky Sports.
“Because if he says yes, then Arsenal should do the trick, and that means that when the season ends or when we are available to transfer, then one or two sales will justify more than its financial package could be. “
