Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has confirmed the club are working on contract extensions for Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Aubameyang’s current deal with the Gunners is set to keep him at the Emirates Stadium until 2021, while Lacazette is under contract until 2022.

“They are very important players and their contracts need to be in the same balance,” Emery said (via Goal ). “It’s one circumstance, one issue now, that the club is working on.

“Edu 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.”

“I want the best for the club,” the Spaniard added. “And I want the best for the players. I think if the club and they are speaking about that, it’s perfect.”
