Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed a new, extended contract with Arsenal which will keep him at the club until the summer of 2023.

The 31-year-old has entered the final year of his current deal, with speculation mounting that he could seek a move away from Arsenal in the search of Champions League football.

Before the appointment of Mikel Arteta it seemed like he would be heading for the exit, but the Spaniard has reportedly won his favour with his aspirations for the club and his playing philosophy.

The news that he has signed a new deal has not ultimately come as a surprise as reports have suggested that it has been agreed in principle for a while even if the club hadn't officially announced it at the time.

They have now, however, confirmed the new deal with Aubameyang announcing it in a video on Twitter.

The Gabon international has already got off to a cracking start this season, as he followed up his superb goal in the Community Shield versus Liverpool by opening his Premier League account against Fulham in the Gunners' 3-0 away victory in the first game of the new campaign.
