Aubameyang joins Arsenal for club-record fee


Arsenal have announced the signing of striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund.

The 28-year-old has agreed “a long-term contract” and joins for a club-record fee.

Aubameyang scored 98 goals in 144 Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund and became the first Gabonese to win the African Footballer of the Year award in 2015.

The striker is Arsenal’s third signing of the January transfer window after Konstantinos Mavropanos, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

This deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes, say Arsenal.

Aubameyang could make his debut at home to Everton on 3 February.

The deal is believed to be in the region of £56 million.
