“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”. The Gabon international 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.”
The Gabonese striker looked set to leave the Emirates this summer, after reports that Barcelona and Inter Milan were after his signature, but that appears to be impossible as he committed to Mikel Arteta’s project.
In a statement via the club website, first-team manager Mikel Arteta said: “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.”
Arsenal appear to be taking all the right steps, with the long term contract of Aubameyang being very important for their rebuild. Since making his debut in the premier league, no other player has scored more than he has.
