Arsenal has completed the signing of striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of €63.75 million (£56m).

With the deal completed, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will have two former Borussia Dortmund stars at his disposal at the Emirate Stadium, that is the duo of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and the latest signing Aubameyang.

The signing of the Gabonese striker will push Oliver Giroud out of Arsenal and he is expected to move to Chelsea while Michy Bathshuayi will move to Dortmund on loan.

The signing of Aubameyang is second major signing for the Gunners in the January transfer window after signing Mkhitaryan from Manchester United in a swap deal for Alexis Sanchez.

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc also confirmed the deal "Apart from the unpleasant happenings of the last few weeks we like to remember that the story of Aubameyang at BVB was a success story for more than four years.

"He's done great things for the club and scored a lot of important goals. He was part of the cup winning team in 2017. We wish him all the best."
