Arsenal captain Aubameyang announces new deal on live video

Villa are closing in on a deal to sign Emiliano Martinez, which will see Nyland move towards the exit door.

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang used a live video recording on Twitter on Tuesday to announce he has signed a contract extension with the Premier League club.

Fans can now relax, however, as the 31-year-old will remain the spearhead of Mikel Arteta's rebuilding project at the Emirates Stadium for the foreseeable future, with the forward now expected to earn somewhere in the region of £250,000 ($320,000) per week as part of his new deal.

The Gunners boss has enjoyed an impressive start to life in the dugout, leading Arsenal to FA Cup glory with wins over Manchester City and Chelsea in the process.

At one stage last term, he admitted he faced a big decision over his future, fuelling reports that he was ready to leave amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.


The Telegraph claim that the Iceland global would cost Arsenal around £1.5m to sign from Dijon in the 2020 summer transfer window.

"I signed the thing because I want to become an Arsenal legend", he said.

The Gabon worldwide was entering the final year of his contract and, even though there were strong suggestions he would eventually sign, some Arsenal fans were growing increasingly concerned it may not happen.

Arsenal are now on a resurgence of form, having won the FA Cup (knocking out Manchester City on the way) and followed that with a Community Shield triumph against Liverpool.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta could have found his replacement immediately with the four-times capped Iceland worldwide on the radar and available for what could be a very low fee. Being the player to have taken the least amount of time to reach 50 goals with this club tells you everything you need to know about him and his way of working.
