The 31-year-old Gabonese and Arsenal striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed new three-year contract worth an initial £250,000-a-week but bonuses included in the contract can take it beyond £350,000-a-week with the north London club.
Aubameyang who joined Arsenal in January 2018 in a £56m move from Borussia Dortmund initial deal was due to expire at the end of the season.
Having put pen to paper on his new deal, our 31-year-old captain said, “I am really really happy to be staying here. ‘This is my home. It’s a great day. I want to become an Arsenal legend and leave a legacy. It’s the time to work a lot but for sure I will give my best, as always.’
Gabonese has since made 111 appearances and scored 72 goals. In his first full season with Arsenal, Auba jointly won the Premier League Golden Boot with 22 goals.
Arsenal coach, Mikel Arteta added: “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.
“He’s an important leader for the team and a big part of what we’re building. He wants to be up there with the best players in the world and leave his mark. He can achieve that here.”
Last season he netted 29 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions, scoring twice in the Heads Up FA Cup final victory against Chelsea. He kicked off this season in similar fashion, scoring against Liverpool in the Community Shield as we lifted the trophy on penalties.
