Official: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Joins Arsenal In Record Deal

By David Kappel - Jan 31, 2018 01:10 PM @kappilinho

Arsenal have officially signed African superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in a new record deal for the club.

Click through the gallery above to see Arsenal’s six most expensive players in history.

The 2016 CAF African Footballer of the Year and African record scorer in the Bundesliga joined the Gunners after quite literally forcing his way out of Borussia Dortmund.

The news was initially broken by his former club Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday afternoon.

"Apart from the unpleasant events of the last couple of days, we like to remember that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's 4.5 years at the club were a success story," said BVB sporting director Michael Zorc.

"He has done great things for Borussia Dortmund at this time, scored many important goals and is part of the team that brought the DFB Pokal to Dortmund in 2017. We wish Pierre-Emerick all the best for his future at Arsenal."

Arsenal have since also confirmed the new club record deal.

Aubameyang joined Arsenal for a fee of €63.75 million (R927 million), breaking the previous record of Alexandre Lacazette, who cost the Gunners €53 million (R786 million) ahead of the current campaign but has since often failed to live up to his price-tag.

How many goals do you think Aubameyang can score for Arsenal this season? Have your say in the comments section below.

As much as Arsenal has added a fire power up front the main problem is still remaining. Our defence is still leaking goals. Just hope we sign Song who is already training with the team , he's better defensively than all the current midfielders we have in the team. we can do with a player like him. the likes of Xhaka have gotten to comfortable for their own good. 6 month deal for song will be good.

Fantastic player, but at a MASSIVE cost. All we are doing is filling gaps left by other stars like Sanchez.........We are an underperforming side with a coach that doesn't want to believe his time is up.....If Ozil also leaves, we will be in BIG BIG trouble.

What a great signing by Arsenal. Can they now sort out Ozil's issue by renewing his contract? Next season we might live to tell a different story if we keep Ozil. Well done Gunners,we really needed Aubemeyang to strengthen our team...!
