Mikel Arteta and Arsenal completed their best signing of the summer when they managed to finally get Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to sign a new contract at the club.
The signing of the contract puts an end to mounting speculation, and also reassures panicking Gunner’s fans.
New 3 year contract at Arsenal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
31 year old Aubameyang has signed a new 3 year deal, keeping him at the Emirates until he is 34. The club announced the news of his new contract on their website.
It appears ‘Auba’ – as he is known at the Emirates – preferred the chance to go down as one of the all time Arsenal greats – alongside Ian Wright and Thierry Henry – to that of a new challenge at one of Europe’s elite clubs.
At the age of 31, it’s probably his last chance to get such a move. So it represents a great deal for the Gunners.
Aubameyang joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund back in 2018. Last season he scored an impressive 29 goals in 44 matches – that was in all competitions.
The Gabon international is now the club captain, and in keeping him, it sends out a big statement of intent from Arsenal. It also gives the club’s younger generation someone to look up to and follow.

Aubameyang got his first goal of the new season last Saturday in Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Fulham.
Alongside the likes of Jamie Vardy, Mo Salah and Harry Kane, Aubameyang is one of the favourites to be the Premier League top goalscorer this season.

Liverpool‘s Mohamed Salah is the current bookie’s favourite at 7/2.

So he definitely has the pedigree in this department!
