Arsenal captain Aubameyang announces new deal on live video

The Telegraph reported on Sunday that Arsenal were in talks with Dijon over a £1.5m deal to sign the 25-year-old stopper after he was recommended to Arteta by goalkeeping coach Inaki Cana - who worked with Runarsson during their time together at Nordsjaelland.

And now Arsenal have tied down Aubameyang's future for the next three years as they look to climb up the league under Arteta.

"What I don't want to happen is, to send him to Aston Villa, then he's back as a number two, I'd rather see him stay at Arsenal if that's the case".

Arsenal confirmed the news themselves on their website in a statement that said: "Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed a new three-year contract with us!"

At one stage, Aubameyang seemed destined for an exit, but after Mikel Arteta rejuvenated the spirit around the club and secured European football with victory in the FA Cup, the head coach and hierarchy managed to convince the Gabon global to stay.

"Hopefully you are happy and I can't wait to see you again at this attractive stadium, hopefully it's soon". "To leave a legacy".

While the contents of the note are widely unknown, we can just about make out from the photo the start of the heartfelt message. Yellow stars were also stitched into the top right corner with "2020" written in blue on the top left hand part of the blanket.

Aubameyang was joined on the call by Wright and his current team-mate Alexandre Lacazette, who praised both his decision to sign the contract.

"He's an important leader for the team and a big part of what we're building".

Aubameyang scored in Arsenal's victory at Fulham on Saturday, the first game of the new Premier League season.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta could have found his replacement immediately with the four-times capped Iceland global on the radar and available for what could be a very low fee.

Runarsson, who now plies his trade in France, had a mixed season last term with Dijon, only making 11 Ligue 1 appearances. 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.
