After announcing his decision to stay, he explained: "I want to become an Arsenal legend, just like Thierry [Henry], [Ian Wright] Wrighty, [Tony] Adams and [Dennis] Bergkamp.

"I want to leave a legacy, this is where I belong. This is my family.

"Signing for this special club was never in doubt.

"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."

His relationship with manager Mikel Arteta was a huge factor in staying at the Emirates Stadium and the Spaniard expressed his delight.

"It was important for Pierre-Emerick to stay with us," Arteta begun.

"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."
