Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Announces New Contract At Arsenal On Instagram Live

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has put an end to months of nervous speculation by signing a new three-year contract to stay at the club, the Gunners have confirmed.

Whether Arsenal's No 14 would stay at the club was a huge talking point at the end of last season, especially as Auba's double won his club the FA Cup against Chelsea and confirmed his huge importance to the north London side.

Here's how he announced his new contract on Instagram Live.

Many thought the player would re-sign as Aubameyang was playing great football and had clearly struck up a bond with new manager Mikel Arteta. However there were stories that the 31-year-old understandably craved Champions League football - and he was linked to clubs such as Barcelona and beyond.

Now, however, all speculation has been settled. A reported three-year contract ties down the prolific Gabonese striker, who has netted an amazing 72 goals in 111 games for Arsenal since his £56 million move from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claimed that Aubameyang had turned down at least two bids to stay, confirming what club sources had always said: that it was a matter of when - not if - the skipper signed a new deal.

Arsenal are currently on a resurgence of form, having won the FA Cup (knocking out Manchester City on the way) and followed that with a Community Shield triumph against Liverpool. The club also made a winning start to the league season, a 3-0 win over newly promoted Fulham which saw Aubameyang on the scoresheet.

Now Arsenal fans can bask in the fact that their star player will be playing in red (or, erm, white marble, or blue and pink) for the rest of this Premier League season. Good times.
