When star player and Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was linked with some of the best teams in Europe like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, it is fair to say that Gunners supporters may have been very worried that they might lose him.
The striker had only one year left on his contract before it was announced by the club that they have managed to keep Aubameyang, who has signed a three-year contract extension. The Gabon striker has been a great talisman for Arsenal since arriving from Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund as he has scored 72 goals in 111 appearances for the Gunners, per Transfermarkt.
On his Instagram profile, he posted a video of him after signing his contract extension, supported with the caption, ‘This is where i belong !!!!’, and those words alone should excite Gunners fans as it illustrates how much he loves the club.
He clearly loves it at north London as he could have moved to a side battling in the Champions League, but his ongoing commitment to Arsenal highlights that he was the right choice as captain and, with him contracted to the club for another few years, the Emirates faithful can look forward to plenty more goals from the Gabon star.
