Mikel Arteta has expressed his delight at the news that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has committed his future to Arsenal. While Arsenal have enjoyed a strong transfer window with the recruits of Gabriel Magalhaes and Willian along with impending incoming money from the sales of Lucas Torreira and Emiliano Martinez, the main piece of business they wanted done was Aubameyang’s new deal.
The Gabon international was entering the final year of his contract and, even though there were strong suggestions he would eventually sign, some Arsenal fans were growing increasingly concerned it may not happen.
He proved his goalscoring prowess once again in their Premier League opening day 3-0 win over Fulham to add to his impressive tally with the Gunners.
And now Arsenal have tied down Aubameyang’s future for the next three years as they look to climb up the league under Arteta.
The Gunners boss has enjoyed an impressive start to life in the dugout, leading Arsenal to FA Cup glory with wins over Manchester City and Chelsea in the process.
