The Gabon international signed for Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018. He has since made 111 appearances and scored 72 goals. In his first full season at the Emirates, Aubameyang jointly won the Premier League Golden Boot with 22 goals.
The future of the Arsenal captain was up in the air with many top European clubs interested in his signature.
The 31-year-old striker has now finally ended all transfer speculations and has signed a new three-year contract extension with Arsenal.
Last season, Aubameyang scored 29 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions and leading Arsenal to the FA Cup title. He has also kicked off this season in a similar fashion, scoring against Liverpool in the Community Shield as Arsenal lifted the trophy on penalties.
Aubameyang said: “Signing for this special club was never in doubt. It’s thanks to our fans, my team-mates, my family and everybody at this club that I feel like I belong here. I believe in Arsenal. We can achieve big things together. We have something exciting here and I believe the best is to come for Arsenal.”
Mikel Arteta added: “It was important for Pierre-Emerick to stay with us. He’s a superb player with an incredible mentality. Being the player to have taken the least amount of time to reach 50 goals with this club tells you everything you need to know about him and his way of working.”
“He’s an important leader for the team and a big part of what we’re building. He wants to be up there with the best players in the world and leave his mark. He can achieve that here.”
Technical director Edu said: “It’s clear Auba loves the club and everything we stand for on and off the pitch. He’s obviously a very important part of the team so we’re all delighted he has committed his future to us. It’s a big boost for everyone – fans, team-mates and staff.”.
It goes without saying that star forward and captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would once again prove to be the inspirational figure for all the Arsenal players this season as well. His wavy trickery and sublime skills have placed him in the elite bracket of Premier League strikers, while also achieving an impressive feat of scoring 20+ goals in consecutive seasons.
