Gabon and Arsenal talisman, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ended all the speculation over his future by signing a new three-year contract with the Gunners thus ensuring that Mikel Arteta retains the most important player in his squad.

Aubameyang, who rejected interest from elsewhere in order to remain with Arsenal, will receive a significant pay rise on top of his previous £200,000-a-week deal and could become the club’s highest earner.

As part of the announcement, Aubameyang was live at the Emirates Stadium and called his Gunners team-mate, Alexandre Lacazette to give him the good news and also a message.

"Finally, you remember when I put the tick-tock so many times? You know, it takes some time but it's finally done. I'm glad that you are here. We're not talking in French, that's strange. I'm happy to see you and I'm happy to be staying with you for a few years," he said to the Frenchman.

"This is how we celebrate. You're crazy, I swear you're crazy. I'm so sorry to keep you waiting but it is done. Crazy stuff but yeah, all done."

Despite turning 31 in June, the striker has showed no signs of slowing down and has arguably been the best forward in the Premier League since arriving in England from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018, scoring 72 goals in 111 appearances in all competitions.
