Arsenal, Aubameyang: “I’m happy to stay here, this is my home”

The 31-year-old striker has extended his contract with the Gunners to his delight and for his coach.

Great day for Arsenal and his supporters, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang extended his contract for another three seasons, ending all speculation about his future. At the end of his contract in the summer of 2021, Gabonese finally signed a new contract, after several months of rumors indicating a desire to leave the former striker for AS Saint-Etienne. Arsenal will therefore not lose their top scorer without compensation next summer.
