Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang is a Gunner
Arsenal fans can finally celebrate the signing of Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund after the Gabonese striker arrived at the club’s training ground on Tuesday afternoon to complete his medical and have his official club photos taken.
The 28 year old forward set out to London on a private jet which was tracked by over 32,000 people on a flight tracking website.
It’s quite amazing that 32,000 people are following this flight right now :D https://t.co/RH3CkcmMUO

But no doubt the most exciting of all updates for fans of the Gunners came a short time ago, when photos of Arsenal jerseys with Aubameyang’s name on the back of them began doing the rounds on social media:

Once the signing of Aubameyang is announced, Arsenal fans will be eager to see their new front four in action.
A forward line containing Lacazette, Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang and Ozil surely makes Arsenal one of the most feared teams in England.
Despite losing Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United, Arsenal have shown that they mean business in this transfer window.
The Gunners have offloaded unwanted players such as Francis Coquelin and Theo Walcott whilst signing two players who are at the peak of their powers in Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang.
Aubameyang’s first month as an Arsenal player will include two vital trips to Wembley as the Gunners face North London rivals Spurs in the league, before returning to the national stadium two weeks later for the Carabao Cup final.
Arsenal fans, this could be a big year.
