The French striker had 12 months remaining on his deal at Highbury but is now tied to The Gunners until 2009.
Aliadiere has endured an injury-plagued last couple of years and missed much of the past season due to a knee problem.
He returned before the end of the term but had been warned by Arsene Wenger that the coming campaign will be a crucial period for Aliadiere.
The Gunners boss clearly feels the 22-year-old is worth persevering with as he has handed the young attacker a new, long-term deal.
But while Aliadiere is tied to the FA Cup winners for the next four years, he could spend next season out on loan.
Paris Saint Germain have been longstanding admirers of the player while there is further interest, although Aliadiere is waiting to see what develops.
Aliadiere told L'Equipe: "No decision has been made and I have nothing concrete yet."
