Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed a new three-year contract with Arsenal.
The 31-year-old’s previous contract had been set to expire at the end of 2020-21 season.
Aubameyang, 31, has been the top-scorer for the Gunners in the last two seasons and was a subject of interest from Barcelona and Inter Milan.
“Signing for this special club was never in doubt,” Aubameyang said. “It’s thanks to our fans, my team-mates, my family and everybody at this club that I feel like I belong here.
“I believe in Arsenal. We can achieve big things together. We have something exciting here and I believe the best is to come for Arsenal.”
Manager Mikel Arteta added: “It was important for Pierre-Emerick to stay with us. He’s a superb player with an incredible mentality. Being the player to have taken the least amount of time to reach 50 goals with this club tells you everything you need to know about him and his way of working.
“He’s an important leader for the team and a big part of what we’re building. He wants to be up there with the best players in the world and leave his mark. He can achieve that here.”
