Aubameyang sends clear message to the fans after officially agreeing his massive £350,000-a-week contract
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has sent a clear message to Arsenal after agreeing his deal with the club.
Regarded as one of the finest strikers in the Premier League, Aubameyang ended months of speculation yesterday when he put pen-to-paper and agreed a massive £350,000-a-week contract at the Emirates.
And now, having committed his future to the club and ending all speculation that he could be leaving soon, he has set his sights on ensuring he is remembered alongside some of the all-time greats.
Aubameyang needs 28 goals to hit the 100 mark for Arsenal, something that is entirely achievable in the coming campaign when you consider he found the net 31 times in 2018-19 and 29 times last season.
“Of course, I knew about Arsenal before I arrived,” he said on the Arsenal website. “Everybody knows how special this club is.
“I’ve seen incredible players, passionate players, Invincible players. I dream of being one of them, amongst the best and staying in the hearts of the fans forever.
“I want to become an Arsenal legend like Thierry, Wrighty, [Tony] Adams, [Dennis] Bergkamp, too many to mention. It means so much for me to be the captain of this special club. I want to leave a legacy. This is where I belong.”
Keeping Auba at the club was then best deal that Arsenal could have done this summer and he will surely go on to become a great at Arsenal, especially as the club are heading in the right direction and are very close to challenging for titles once again.
This is great news and will have sent a real buzz around the fans, so now many will be hoping that Auba proves that he deserves all the investment that Arsenal have put in and does not go and do a Mesut Ozil after agreeing the deal.
