ARSENAL fans think Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is close to signing a new deal after video crews were spotted filming next to Thierry Henry’s statue.
The striker’s contract is set to expire next summer and he has not yet reached an agreement with the club to extend his stay.
But fans went wild after an image from outside of the Emirates did the rounds on Twitter.
It showed a film crew recording footage next to the statue of Gunners legend Henry.
As Aubameyang, 31, now wears Henry’s iconic No14 jersey, supporters think an announcement video is on the way.
One said: “Production crew at the Emirates today doing a video which includes Thierry Henry’s statue.
“We all know who the current number 14 is.”

Another supporter replied: “Epic spot. Why would FA Cup promo use smoke machines? Generally they just do fancy light work.”
One Twitter user added: “The only reason they might use the Henry statue is the transition of the No14 jersey.
“Auba sign that thing. It can’t be a FA Cup promo video, the final is less than week, the video would have been done immediately after the victory over the Citizens.”
Arsenal’s official Twitter account also teased a potential new deal for the Gabon ace after the win over Watford.
But fans were left fearing the worst after Aubameyang’s father hinted he could be leaving this summer.
Aubameyang has been a huge hit for the club since he joined from Dortmund in 2018.
He boasts a record of 85 appearances, 54 goals and 12 assists in the Premier League.
