Arsenal have announced that the club has completed the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund (via Arsenal.com).
After years of speculation and weeks of waiting, Arsenal have finally announced the news which the fans have been waiting for: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a Gunners player.
The striker has signed for the Gunners on a long-term contract in a club-record deal from Borussia Dortmund.
The transfer is believed to be in excess of £61 million which eclipses the £52 million the Gunners spent on Alexandre Lacazette in the summer.

Aubameyang has been one of the top scorers in European football in the last few years, scoring 69 goals in his last 79 Bundesliga matches.
It’s great to see that the club has finally wrapped up a deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. He’s a fine player and provides goals and pace to an attacking line which sorely needs it.
Aubameyang will link up with his one-time teammate at Dortmund, Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Let’s hope the pair can fire Arsenal to some silverware this season.
