What a day to be a Gunner eh !!!
A day after losing 3-1 to Chelsea Arsenal have moved on to complete the signing of Pierre-Emerick-Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund for a club record fee.
The 28-year-old forward joins the north Londoners on a “long-term contract” after four seasons at Dortmund, the club has confirmed.
After previous reports about a fee being agreed in principle with the German club but waiting to be signed off after Dortmund themselves sign a replacement, Arsenal have now officially confirmed the arrival of the Gabon international on their official website.

The Gabonese is Arsenal’s second signing of the January transfer window, following Henrikh Mkhitaryan who joined last week from Manchester United in a player-swap with Alexis Sanchez.
Speaking after joining from Dortmund, our record fee player spoke to Arsenal official website about his delight at signing with the club where great players like Theirry Henry have been immortalized, something which has played a key part in his decision to join the club where his good friend ‘ Micki ‘ has also joined.
In his first interview for the club, here is what he had to say about joining our club :
“Finally! I’m really happy to be here,” “Of course I can join Micki in this team, so I’m really happy to be here in this great team. “I think the club has such a big history and great players like Thierry Henry. He’s an example for us strikers. I’m really happy, like I said before.”
On his admiration for Henry, he continued:
“He was fast and scored a lot of goals. He’s really an example. I think I have to work a lot to be like him, but I will do. “I’m a fast player and I score goals too, like Henry a little bit. But as I said, I have to work a lot more.”
Speaking about his intention of getting Arsenal to the top, he also had this to add for the supporters :
“I hope that we will come back to the top as soon as possible. I will do my best to join in.”
Meanwhile we cannot believe that we have signed a striker who wears a hoodie with his own initials spelled in diamonds.
Cheers to us, Arsenal and to a gorgeous future with this guy leading our lines and completing our LMAO of Lacazette, Mikhitaryan, Aubameyang and Ozil .
Incredibly sexy we know but if only we could just stop drooling with this image of them four starting a match in an Arsenal shirt.
Coming very soon guys
