- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed a new three-year deal set to expire until 2023
- The 31-year-old will reportedly be earning £250,000 per week making him the second most paid player
- The Gabon international has scored 71 goals in 110 appearances in his career at the Emirates
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed a new deal that will see him extend his contract at the Emirates for the next three years.
It is understood that the Arsenal striker's deal is worth a massive £250,000-a-week ending his speculation about a move out of north London.
The former Borussia Dortmund striker is now the second-highest earner with the Gunners behind Mesut Ozil.
The Gabon international whose deal came to an end this summer was instrumental to the Gunners' impressive run last term.
He has scored 71 goals in 110 appearances for the club and the 31-year-old does not look like slowing down at the moment with his goal scoring form.
Aubameyang trained with the rest of the team ahead of their Premier League opener against London rivals Fulham.
He helped Arsenal book a place in the Europa League last season following their FA Cup win last month.
The ex-AC Milan star scored two goals each in the semi finals against Man City and Chelsea in the finals to land Mikel Arteta's first silverware as manager.
Aubameyang was instrumental to Arsenal's Community Shield win over Liverpool as he converted the decisive spot-kick to give his side the win.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Mesut Ozil has revealed his all-time dream team to his fans on social media and none of his current Arsenal teammates are involved.
The German midfielder who has fallen out of favour with Mikel Arteta told his 24.9 million Twitter followers to ask him series of questions.
And one of them wanted to know the 2014 World Cup winner's dream XI and the 31-year-old answered.
Legit.ng also reported that Willian cracked a joke with international teammate Thiago Silva that he would have stayed at Chelsea if he knew he was joining the Blues, reports claim.
Silva joined Frank Lampard's side on a one-year deal shortly after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired in the summer.
On the other hand, Willian refused to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge and joined London rivals Arsenal on a three-year contract.
