Europa League finalists Arsenal have concluded plans to give star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a new contract to ward off the interest of Chinese clubs according to the report from the Daily Mirror.
Chinese Super League duo Shanghai SIPG and Guangzhou Evergrande are interested in the Gabonese international star.
Both clubs are willing to offer him £300,000 on a weekly basis to tempt him away from North London.
Aubameyang is the second highest earner at Arsenal with weekly wages of £190,000 and he has two years left on his present contract with the Gunners.

The 29-year-old is the most expensive player in the history of Arsenal following his £55m move from German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund last year.
He has spent 18 months out of the three-and-a-half year deal signed by the player upon his move to the Emirates Stadium.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been an instant hit at Arsenal after he finished the just concluded Premier League season as the joint topscorer with 22 goals alongside the Liverpool duo of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
His striker partner Alexandre Lacazette will also be offered a new contract to ward off the interest of the likes of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid though his contract talks is less urgent than what’s obtainable with Aubameyang since he still has three years left on his Arsenal contract.
