Aubameyang delighted with Arsenal move: I want to be like Henry

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is overjoyed with his move to Arsenal.

Aubameyang sealed his €63m switch from Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

And the Gabon international has immediately set himself the difficult task of emulating club legend Thierry Henry.

“Finally! I'm really happy to be here. Of course I can join Micki in this team, so I'm really happy to be here in this great team," he told the club's website.

“I think the club has such a big history and great players like Thierry Henry. He's an example for us strikers. I'm really happy, like I said before.

“Maybe! I think I have to work a lot to be like him, but I will do.

“I'm a fast player and I score goals too, like Henry a little bit. But as I said, I have to work a lot more.

“I hope that we will come back to the top as soon as possible. I will do my best to join in."
