Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has being signed into Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in a club record £56m deal. The Gunners had two bids for the 28-year-old rejected by Dortmund before agreeing a fee that eclipses the £46.5m July purchase of Alexandre Lacazette. The deal was complete after striking a deal to sign Michy Batshuayi on loan.
Aubameyang scored 141 goals in 213 games for Dortmund since 2013, including 21 in 24 matches this season. He was suspended by the German club for their match against Wolfsburg on January 14 for missing a team meeting. He also left out of the squad for their next game at Hertha Berlin because club officials felt he was not focused enough, but he played 90 minutes in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Freiburg. During his stay with the Bundesliga club the only major trophy he won was the German Cup in 2017.
He was named Bundesliga player of the year in 2016 and last season was the German top flight's most prolific scorer with 31 goals. He has played 56 times for Gabon, scoring 23 goals.
