Who saw that coming?
Arsenal have put their fans out of their misery by finally #announcing the signing Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gabonese forward joins from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of £56million — a club record fee for the Gunners.
Arsenal confirmed the signing on social media with a short video of recent recruit Henrikh Mkhitaryan encouraging his former team-mate to join him in north London.
It appears the previously circulated leaked footage of the Armenian talking to camera at his signing was for indeed for Aubameyang’s announcement video…
28-year-old Aubameyang scored 141 goals in 213 games for Dortmund.
The 2015 African Footballer of the Year is expected to take the No14 shirt at the Emirates.
Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi is set to escape Antonio Conte’s hate dungeon and join Dortmund on loan until the end of the season.
All this leaves the door open for Olivier Giroud to join Chelsea on a temporary basis, thus completing a high-profile transfer merry-go-round.
More importantly, Aubameyang can be transferred into your Dream Team for £5.0m at the soonest available date…
