Gunners sign striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund
Arsenal have signed Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund for a club record ?56m, Arsenal's website has confirmed.


Aubameyang becomes the Gunners' third signing of the January transfer window, after Konstantinos Mavropanos and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who joined from Manchester United and will re-unite with former Dortmund team-mate Aubameyang.

Dortmund had initially wanted ?61m (€70m) and turned down Arsenal’s opening offers of ?40m and ?44m for the Gabon international. The north Londoners later raised their offer to ?56m, plus add-ons, which Dortmund agreed to.

Aubameyang - who will wear the number 14 shirt at Arsenal - joined Dortmund from French club Saint-Etienne in 2013 was named Bundesliga Player of The Year in 2016, and last season was the German top flight's most prolific scorer with 31 goals.

The Gabon international was prolific during his four and a half seasons at Dortmund, scoring 98 Bundesliga goals in 144 appearances. In all competitions he had 141 in 213 matches. Since the beginning of the 2015-16 season the 28-year-old scored 100 goals for Dortmund – 45 more than any player has scored for Arsenal in the same period.
