Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has committed his future to the club, penning a three-year extension with the London side.
The 31-year-old Gabon striker joined the Gunners in January 2018 and won the Premier League Golden Boot in his first full season in 2018-19.
He was named captain last season and lifted the FA Cup at the end of the campaign, netting twice in the final against Chelsea.
“Signing for this special club was never in doubt,” he said.
“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.”
Aubameyang’s contract was due to expire at the end of the 2020-21 season meaning he would have been free to talk to other clubs from January.
The 2015 African Player of the Year scored in Arsenal’s victory at Fulham on Saturday, the first game of the new Premier League season.
“It was important for Pierre-Emerick to stay with us,” said Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta.
“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.”
Since joining the Gunners, for a then club-record £56m, Aubameyang has scored 72 goals in 111 appearances in all competitions. In 86 Premier League appearances he has scored 55 goals and made 12 assists.
