Arsenal have finally landed their man! Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund for a club record fee of £56 million (63.7 million euros, 79.2 million euros) on Wednesday, in the biggest deal so far on transfer deadline day.

 
The Arsenal shattered their transfer record - the £46.5 million they splurged for Frenchman ALexandre Lacazette last August - for the former AC Milan and St Etienne forward.
 
"Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has joined us from Borussia Dortmund on a long-term contract for a club-record fee," the statement from Arsenal said.
 
The club described him as "one of the world?s most highly-rated strikers".
 
"He scored 98 goals in 144 Bundesliga games for Dortmund and had a hand in 172 goals in 213 matches in all competitions for his former club," it continued.
 
It remains to be seen whether Auba can reproduce his blistering Dortmund form but Arsenal fans can get a glimpse of his ability by watching the 31 goals he netted for Dortmund in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga season below;
