Arsenal target Aubameyang extends Dortmund contract until 2020

Borrusia Dortmund have extended the contract of one of the most sort after strikers in Europe Aubameyang until 2020.

The Gabonese forward who was rumoured to be a transfer target for Arsene Wenger still has three years left on his contract before signing the new deal.

"I'm absolutely delighted that the next years of my career will be spent at Borussia Dortmund. I feel very happy at the club, in this team and in this city. BVB has become like a second home to me. Every part of me wants to be here and I have never wanted to leave," said the 26-year-old striker, who joined the club in 2013.

"Auba has developed outstandingly. We are very happy that we have been able to tie him down to a long-term contract," explained Sporting Director Michael Zorc after Aubameyang's contract had been extended.

The Gabon international, who was born in the French town of Laval and has a French passport, was a consistent performer in his first two seasons in Dortmund, scoring twelve and 16 Bundesliga goals respectively. In the 2014/15 season, he found the net 25 times across all competitions.
