Arsenal officially announce new Mesut Ozil contract and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang deal

Arsenal have officially announced midfielder Mesut Ozil has signed a new contract. The Gunners have also announced the signing of Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in a day of blockbuster deals by the club.


Ozil has signed a new contract worth £350,000-a-week that will run through 2021. It is the same figure Alexis Sanchez received from Manchester United. However, Ozil has been given praise for his attitude this season. Sanchez was criticised by many for the way he acted as he worked for a move away from the Emirates.

Arsenal’s Twitter account also officially announced the signing of Aubameyang from Dortmund. The club now has an exceptional attacking quartet of Alexandre Lacazette, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang and Ozil.

After the announcements of both Ozil’s contract and Aubameyang’s signing, Twitter was a buzz with excitement.

Arsenal are coming off of a loss to Swansea in the Premier League. The Gunners are three points behind fifth place Tottenham who have a game in hand.
