Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will sign a three-year contract extension with Arsenal.

The intervention of Mikel Arteta proved crucial and his relationship with Aubameyang and the Gabon international’s father was fundamental to getting the deal done after months of negotiations.

Aubameyang was entering the final season of his deal and was set to receive interest from Inter Milan and Barcelona. 

Arsenal believe Aubameyang can defy the age curve at 31.
