Arsenal are set to offer star strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette new long-term deals.
According to the Daily Mail, the Gunners are keen to tie down the attacking pair after their impressive season, bagging 49 goals between them.
Having lost star players on the cheap in the past, they want to protect the value of their assets in the event the time does come that they want to leave.
The deadly duo have flourished for the Gunners this term and were the goal-scoring heroes in the Europa League semi-final tie against Valencia.
Aubameyang and Lacazette’s partnership has made them one of the most-feared strike-forces in the Premier League.
And the Sunday Mail claim the North London outfit want to ensure they avoid a repeat situation of allowing players to reach the final year of their contracts and cash in rather than letting them leave for nothing.
Robin van Persie and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are prime examples of this while Aaron Ramsey, who is a free agent this summer, is heading to Juventus.
Arsenal are looking to hand a £250,000-a-week deal to Aubameyang who has two years left to run on his existing deal.
Aaron Ramsey will leave on a free transfer to Juventus because he is a free agent.
The fans are furious and Arsenal will now act to prevent similar situations arising with Aubameyang and Lacazette.
