Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed the reason why he signed for Arsenal in January.

The prolific centre-forward has admitted that Arsene Wenger was behind his move to The Emirates in January.

Aubameyang says that people take the manager for granted, and that Wenger was the reason he opted to make the switch.

Speaking to The Daily Mail, Aubameyang said this:

I think we take the manager for granted, I am really happy because I am here because of him.

He had the interest in me so I am happy to play for him.

Arsenal signed Aubameyang for a club-record £56m in January from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.

He has made a solid start to life in England, with three goals and one assist in five Premier League matches.

The Gabon international will hope for a strong end to the season, before being able to fully kick on next season for Arsenal.
