The Gabon international's previous deal had been set to expire in the summer of 2021 and he had been locked in talks over a renewal for several months.

And now Arsenal have tied down Aubameyang's future for the next three years as they look to climb up the league under Arteta.

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. "I wanted to share it with you guys and I'm so happy - a bit nervous!"

"I feel so good here, it's a great day and I hope you enjoy your day".

Over 100,000 people were watching the announcement via the official Arsenal Instagram account, with Aubameyang adding: "I signed the thing because I want to become an Arsenal legend, maybe leave a legacy, it is the time to work a lot".

"Hopefully you are happy and I can't wait to see you again at this lovely stadium, hopefully it's soon". Hopefully it's going to be soon.

"What I don't want to happen is, to send him to Aston Villa, then he's back as a number two, I'd rather see him stay at Arsenal if that's the case".

Arsenal brought in Mikel Arteta to replace Unai Emery during December of previous year and since then, the Gunners have moved mostly forward.

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta now has a very big squad that will have a lot of players that will want to take part in matches and we today take a look at two players that will give him squad choosing headache when they become fit to play. He's a superb player with an incredible mentality. "He can achieve that here".

While technical director Edu said: "It's clear Auba loves the club and everything we stand for on and off the pitch. It's a big boost for everyone - fans, team-mates and staff".
