Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang signs new Arsenal contract to end transfer speculation

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has ended speculation over his future by signing a new three-year deal at the club.

Aubameyang, 31, was linked with a move away from the Emirates with the likes of Barcelona and Inter Milan said to be interesting in acquiring his services.

But the Gabonese striker, who has finished as Arsenal’s top goalscorer the past two seasons, has now announced an extension to his contract, which was due to expire next summer.

The deal will keep Aubameyang at the club until 2023.
