Arsenal Signs Gabon Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang For £56m
Aubameyang is officially a Gunner.
The London football club had two bids for the 28-year-old player rejected before Dortmund agreed on the current figure, which is a record for the club.
"I'm really happy to be here in this great team. The club has such a big history and great players like Thierry Henry. He's an example for us strikers. I'm a fast player and I score goals too, like Henry a little bit. I think I have to work a lot to be like him, but I will do. I hope that we will come back to the top as soon as possible. I will do my best to join in."
