Arsenal fans hoping to see Gabonese hitman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in a Gunners’ shirt anytime soon have a long wait ahead of them as the Borussia Dortmund forward ended the prevalent speculation about his future by inking a new long term contract with the Bundesliga giants.
Aubameyang, who has been linked both with Arsenal and their North London rivals Tottenham, penned a new contract with Dortmund which runs all the way till 2020.
The African star shared his delight with the local press, stating, “I feel very happy at this club, in this team and in this city. Dortmund has become like a second home to me. Every part of me wants to be here and I’ve never wanted to leave.”
Hopefully this will end speculation of Arsenal tabling a record breaking bid for the Dortmund man, and hopefully the Gunners can turn their attentions to better targets.
