Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Arsenal fans can now heave a heavy sigh of relief following their captain's decision to commit his future to the club.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed a new two-year deal to remain at the Emirates Stadium until the summer of 2023.
His current deal was due next June, but he has now ended all speculation linking him away from the North London club anytime soon.
The Gabon international earns £250,000-a-week, however, it could rise beyond the £350,000-a-week wages paid to Mesut Ozil with bonuses included in the new deal.
The 31-year-old opened his goal account for the new Premier League in their 3-0 win over Fulham at the Craven Cottage last weekend.
