Arsenal club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has finally put pen-to-paper on a new three-year deal.


The Gabon international officially ended speculation regarding his future by making a long-term commitment to the North London club.


Aubameyang joined Arsenal from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in January 2018. He won the English Premier League golden boot in his first full season at the club and ended second behind Jamie Vardy in the scoring charts last season.


In total, the 31-year-old has scored 72 goals in 111 appearances for the Gunners and was on target in their 3-0 thumping of Fulham on the opening day of the 2020/21 Premier League season.


“Signing for this special club was never in doubt,” Aubameyang said.


“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.”


Aubameyang was named captain in November last year after Granit Xhaka was stripped of the armband by Unai Emery.


The 2015 African Footballer of the Year scored a brace against both Manchester City and Chelsea to lead Arsenal to the 2020 FA Cup title while he was also on target in the club’s FA Community Shield triumph over Liverpool.
