Arsenal have announced the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund on a three-year contract. The Gabon international has scored 116 goals in 219 appearances for Dortmund and is expected to add further firepower to Arsenal’s attack.
The Arsenal striker signs a new 3-year contract
Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed a new three-year contract with the club. The deal will keep Aubameyang at Arsenal until 2021.
Aubameyang joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in January 2017 and has scored 38 goals in all competitions for the Gunners. The Gabonese international is one of the most prolific strikers in Europe, having scored more goals than any other player in the Premier League this season.
What the deal means for Aubameyang
Aubameyang has signed a new one-year contract with Arsenal, the club have announced. The deal means that the Gabon international will stay at the Emirates Stadium until May 2020.
The news comes as a relief to Arsenal fans, after reports emerged earlier this month that Aubameyang was considering leaving the club. The 31-year-old had been in talks over a new contract since November, but negotiations hit a snag over the weekend.
However, it is now thought that Aubameyang has agreed to terms on a new deal that will keep him at Arsenal for another season. Under Arsene Wenger, Aubameyang has established himself as one of the best goalscorers in Europe and he is keen to extend his stay at the club.
Arsenal have also confirmed that they have agreed a fee with Borussia Dortmund for Alexis Sanchez, who is set to join Manchester United in January.
What else is happening at Arsenal this week?
Arsenal manager Unai Emery has announced that the club has signed prolific striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for a further year. Aubameyang, who is currently with the Cameroon national team at the African Cup of Nations, has scored 29 goals in all competitions this season.
This signing comes just days after midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan agreed to sign a new contract with Arsenal, tying him down to the club until 2021. Mkhitaryan has been a key figure in Emery’s side this season and has contributed 16 goals and 11 assists in all competitions.
Both Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan are key players for Arsenal and their signings will keep them at the club until at least 2021.
After a strong season in which he scored 30 goals for Dortmund, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed a new 3-year contract with Arsenal. The Gabonese striker was one of the key players that helped propel Arsene Wenger’s side to the Premier League title last season and will be looking to continue his good form this term. With Olivier Giroud currently out of favour at Arsenal, Aubameyang could be given more opportunities to impress this season and cement his place in the Gunners’ starting lineup.
