Arsenal won out in the FA Cup final against Chelsea yesterday and following the game, goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez was straight onto his Twitter account to encourage Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to stay put.
The Gabon striker was the star of the show for the Gunners once again as he scored twice to bring home Mikel Arteta’s first trophy as a manager.
However, he is yet to sign a new deal with the club, meaning he could be free to walk away for nothing in just 12 months.
At the opposite end of the pitch, goalkeeper Martinez has been in fine form since replacing Bernd Leno as the regular number one. The 27-year-old has been excellent and was clearly emotional following the cup win.
Martinez seemed to want to keep the positive vibes going at the club following the game, too, as he encouraged Aubameyang to sign a new deal via a response on Twitter.

Without stating the obvious, it appears that everyone involved with Arsenal is desperate for Aubameyang to stay put this summer.
Things like this from Martinez, then, will only fuel talk amongst supporters.
Auba surely has to stay now, or does he bow out on a high… – TBR View
The best thing for everyone here would be to see Aubameyang sign a new deal with the Gunners within the next few weeks.
That way, Arsenal and Arteta can move into the summer with relative ease and know they have their best player on board.
But there are two scenarios here that could pan out and it could worry Arsenal. Sure, Aubameyang might stay put and continue to be the main man at the club.
The second, and more worrying scenario, is the striker bows out on a high and leaves the club having bagged an FA Cup winners medal.
