Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has put pen to paper on a new three year deal for Arsenal on Tuesday, ending speculations over his future.

His new contract has made him the highest paid player in the English Premier League.

SunSport have revealed the Gabonese international has overtaken teammate Mesut Ozil on the rich list.

On the same level with Ozil is Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea who signed a bumper contract extension last September.

“I want to leave a legacy, this is where I belong. This is my family.

“Signing for this special club was never in doubt.

“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.”
