Arsenal complete club-record signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Signs For Arsenal

Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for a club-record fee of £56 million.

The 28-year-old forward is believed to have signed a three-and-a-half-year deal that runs until 2021 and makes him the highest-paid player at the north London club on a massive £180,000-a-week. Arsenal sent a delegation of officials to Dortmund last week, led by chief executive Ivan Gazidis and head of recruitment Sven Mislintat, and a breakthrough in talks was finally made over the weekend.

Arsene Wenger had been keen to sign a proven, high-calibre player to replace contract rebel Alexis Sanchez, who moved to Manchester United in a straight swap for Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Aubameyang’s move to the Emirates sees him reunited with Mkhitaryan, who he enjoyed a fruitful relationship with during their two seasons together at Dortmund. The Gabon striker scored 98 goals in 144 Bundesliga appearances while at Dortmund after being signed by Mislintat from Saint-Etienne four-and-a-half years ago, and won the Bundesliga golden boot last season.

A statement from Arsenal confirmed: ‘The 28-year-old has joined us from Borussia Dortmund on a long-term contract for a club-record fee. ‘This deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes and Auba’s squad number will be confirmed shortly.’
