Arsenal have confirmed that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed a new three-year contract with the club.

The club staged an elaborate live announcement as their captain penned his deal.

The 31-year-old then confirmed he has signed a new contract to stay in North London, which could eventually make him the highest paid player taking bonuses into account.

Speaking on a live stream, the striker admitted his ambition to “become an Arsenal legend” was behind his decision to stay.

With his previous deal expiring in 2021, Aubameyang had been linked with moves to Chelsea, Inter and Barcelona earlier this year.

However, those rumours died down as the striker looked certain to extend in north London.

He’s now done just that, after his Wembley goals saw Arsenal win a record 14th FA Cup and the the Community Shield in August.

Made Arsenal captain in 2019, Aubameyang started the new Premier League season with a goal against Fulham on Saturday, taking his Arsenal tally to a sensational 72 goals in 111 appearances.
