Auba - I'm so happy to be here at Arsenal


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang became our club-record signing when he joined the club on Wednesday.

We sat down with the Gabon striker to discuss becoming a Gunner, his playing style and his admiration of Thierry Henry.

This is what he said:

Pierre, after all the talk and all the speculation, you’re finally an Arsenal player. How does it feel?
"Finally! I’m really happy to be here. Of course I can join Micki in this team, so I’m really happy to be here in this great team."

What is it about Arsenal that you like so much, that appealed to you?
"I think the club has such a big history and great players like Thierry Henry. He's an example for us strikers. I’m really happy, like I said before."

What is it about Thierry that you loved so much?
"Because he was fast and scored a lot of goals. He's really an example."

Sounds like you…
"Maybe! I think I have to work a lot to be like him, but I will do."

How would you describe your playing style?
"I’m a fast player and I score goals too, like Henry a little bit. But as I said, I have to work a lot more."

Finally, what’s your message to the Arsenal fans?
"I hope that we will come back to the top as soon as possible. I will do my best to join in."

Which shirt number will Aubameyang wear for us?


We can reveal that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will wear the No 14 shirt for us!

Auba became our record signing when he joined us from Borussia Dortmund on transfer deadline day.
Auba has taken the shirt number vacated by Theo Walcott, who left us for Everton in January.
The previous occupant of our No 14 shirt? Thierry Henry.

Auba - Micki is really like a brother to me

By his own admission, the chance to link up with Henrikh Mkhitaryan again was a key factor in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's decision to join us.

The pair developed a fantastic understanding during their time together at Borussia Dortmund - and Auba says that was true off the pitch as well.

"I’m really happy [to be at the same club as Micki again]," Aubameyang told Arsenal Player. "He’s really like a brother, a good friend, and we’ve played together in the past. I’m really happy to see him again."
"He called me a few times and he asked me, ‘Will you come or not?’ and I said, ‘First you have to tell me if you sign or not!’ Then he told me it was all done, and of course it was a big factor in coming here."
"I think we understand each other on and off the pitch. I think that’s why it’s a little bit easier on the pitch."
