‘This is my home’ Aubameyang officially extends his stay at Arsenal

Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has given Arsenal a major boost at the start of the Premier League season by signing a new deal.


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has ended speculation over his future by agreeing a new, three-year contract extension with Arsenal. The Gunners captain’s previous contract was due to expire next June, but he has decided to commit to the Premier League club.

Aubameyang commits future to “special club” Arsenal
A prolific striker, Aubameyang has scored 72 goals in 111 appearances since joining Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of 60 million euros in January 2018.

“Signing for this special club was never in doubt,” Aubameyang told Arsenal’s official website. “It’s thanks to our fans, my team-mates, my family and everybody at this club that I feel like I belong here. I believe in Arsenal. We can achieve big things together. We have something exciting here and I believe the best is to come for Arsenal.”

In his first full season with Arsenal in 2018-19, Aubameyang scored 22 goals to be a joint winner of the Premier League Golden Boot. Last season, the 31-year-old enjoyed another superb campaign, with 29 goals in 44 appearances across all competitions. He scored both of the Gunners’ goals in each of their respective FA Cup semi-final and final victories over Manchester City and Chelsea and continued his superb Wembley form with a fabulous strike in last month’s Community Shield encounter with Liverpool, which Mikel Arteta’s side won on penalties.

Arteta thrilled with Auba decision
As speculation mounted over Aubameyang’s future, Arteta expressed confidence he would sign renewed terms and the manager is delighted to have got his man. “It was important for Pierre-Emerick to stay with us,” he said. “He’s a superb player with an incredible mentality. 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. He’s an important leader for the team and a big part of what we’re building. He wants to be up there with the best players in the world and leave his mark. He can achieve that here.”

Hammers up next
Arsenal began their Premier League campaign with a 0-3 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage, where Aubameyang completed the scoring, and they are back in action at home to West Ham on Saturday.

Ceballos joins Arsenal yet again

Advertisements

Arsenal are close to completing the signing of Dani Ceballos on loan for the second successive season.

The deal doesn’t include an option to buy for the Gunners or anything similar.

Real Madrid still want to keep the midfielder on their books and the player himself doesn’t want to give up on his dream of making it at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

With Zinedine Zidane still in charge, though, the 24-year-old knows he must seek a move away from Los Blancos in order to play regularly.

According to LaSexta, talks between Arsenal and Real Madrid were already at an advanced stage when Ceballos trained at Valdebebas on Monday.

Confirmation of the agreement between the two clubs is expected to be made on Tuesday.

Arsenal was the player’s preferred destination – he thinks he can keep improving under Mikel Arteta.

Ceballos made 37 appearances in his first loan spell at the Emirates Stadium last season.

The Spaniard is the latest player to leave Real Madrid this summer after Reinier Jesus and Takefusa Kubo.

Exits for Brahim Diaz, on loan to AC Milan, and James Rodriguez, permanently to Everton, are also pending official confirmation.
