Mesut Ozil signs new long-term contract with Arsenal

The £55m switch to the Emirates Stadium will see the striker become Arsenal's record signing

New Arsenal signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang trained for the first time as an Arsenal player on Thursday morning.

Per BBC, the 29-year-old becomes the highest-paid player in club history, earning around 350,000 euros a week before tax. However, he'll be with Arsenal until the summer of 2021 and committed to the club until his age-32 season.

The London club bolstered their forward line by signing the Gabon worldwide from Borussia Dortmund for a club-record fee on Wednesday but Aubameyang, 28, did not fully participate in Thursday's training session due to a fever.

Aubameyang's former Dortmund team-mate Henrikh Mkhitaryan joined Arsenal after coming over from Manchester United in exchange for Alexis Sanchez.

"Good things take time".

British media reported that the new deal is worth up to 350,000 pounds a week, making the World Cup victor the highest-paid player at the club.

But with a new contract signed, Wenger believes Ozil will be able to lead Arsenal to success this season.

He said the country was not going to get better except Nigerians come together to change the narrative and the situation.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hopes Aubameyang's arrival will off-set the loss of Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United and the Gabon worldwide is determined to make a good first impression on the Premier League.

"In the end I let my heart decide".

Since joining Arsenal in 2013 from Real Madrid, ozil has 36 goals and 61 assists in 182 matches for the Gunners, winning three FA Cups.

But the Gunners now sit eight points off a place in the Premier League top four having lost to struggling Swansea on Tuesday night.

Manager Arsene Wenger is more likely a key figure in Ozil's decision.

The futures of the German World Cup victor and Alexis Sanchez had dominated the transfer gossip pages since last summer due to both players' deals expiring at the end of this season.
