Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, The 2015 African Footballer of the Year, was made captain in November after midfielder Granit Xhaka was stripped of Arteta’s role predecessor Unai Emery, has signed a new three-year deal with the club.

The 31-year-old striker joined the Gunners in January 2018 and won the Premier League Golden Boot in his first full season in 2018-19.

“Signing for this special club was never in doubt,” he 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.”

Aubameyang’s contract was due to expire at the end of the 2020-21 season, meaning he would have been free to talk to other clubs from January.

He also scored two goals against Chelsea in the FA Cup final in July, securing the Gunners’ place in next season’s Europa League.

Since joining Arsenal, for a then club-record £56m, Aubameyang has been doing numbers and putting Africa on the map. He has scored 72 goals in 111 appearances in all competitions. In 86 Premier League appearances, he has scored 55 goals and made 12 assists.
