Dortmund confirmed the news on their Twitter account on Wednesday, before Arsenal then shared a picture of Aubameyang posing in the club’s home kit, while screaming into the camera. He has become the best-paid player in the club’s history on a three-and-a-half-year contract worth £180,000 per week.
The 28-year-old striker is part of a transfer merry-go-round that will see Olivier Giroud leave the Gunners for Chelsea and Michy Batshuayi quit Stamford Bridge to replace Aubameyang at Dortmund.
But Aumbameyang brings with him a bad-boy reputation, having been the subject of several disciplinary proceedings by Dortmund.
The move for the explosive striker has been driven by Arsenal’s recently-appointed head of recruitment Sven Mislintat.
Aubameyang does not fit the usual profile of player the Gunners have tried to sign in recent years.
