“My dad is my biggest inspiration, he was captain of his club and his country, so it means so much to me to be the captain of this special club.
“I want to leave a legacy, this is where I belong, this is my family.”
In another interview, Aubameyang said: “I am really, really happy to stay here.
“This is my home. I want to become an Arsenal legend and leave a legacy. It’s time to work a lot to become a legend but for sure I will give my best.”
However, less than 12 months on, Aubameyang is now linked with a move away from the Emirates.
