The Gabon hitman originally signed for Arsenal in a £60m deal from German club Borussia Dortmund in January, 2018.
The 31-year-old club skipper has hit an astonishing 70 goals in just 96 starts for the North Londoners.
He did not really have much competition for the Player of the Year award after generally a disappointing season for the Gunners.
They finished eighth in the Premier League, their lowest since George Graham was sacked in 1995, as they missed out on qualification for the Champions League.
The Gunners axed Unai Emery in November, bringing in Mikel Arteta.
Aubameyang had not played in this season’s FA Cup until his stunning two-goal show cut down favourites Manchester City in the semi-final.
He then struck twice in the showpiece finale against Chelsea as Arteta ended three years without silverware for the Gunners.
Aubameyang is set to sign a £250,000-a-week new Arsenal deal.
It comes as the Gunners announced they are making 55 staff redundant as they battle the fall-out from the crippling coronavirus pandemic.
