It is done!!! We have successfully signed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund for a fee around £52 million. Aubameyang has been a deadly striker for Borussia Dortmund scoring 141 goals in 213 appearances. I personally agree with all the hype around him and believe that he will do great things for our club. However, let’s not get too hyped up because he could be a flop, as hard as it is to say that. We should all know from Di Maria and Falcao at Man Utd. However, I think he is going to do just fine in the Premier League.
I’m going to kind of drift away from Aubameyang a little bit to talk about Olivier Giroud. One of the tallest and strongest strikers in the Premier League, Giroud scored 73 goals in 180 appearances. Giroud may not have been a van Persie, Henry, or Bergkamp type of striker, he still had massive loyalty towards our club and I believe he has the best attitude in Arsenal history. It may not seem like much of an achievement, but having a good attitude makes you a very good worker which transfers into a good player. Giroud was very inconsistent and received lots of hate over the years, and unlike other players, he pulled up his pants and dealt with it. I know many players who probably would have gotten very mad at the club if they received as much as hate as Giroud did. The number 12 will always be remembered as you number, Olivier, and everyone from the Arsenal community will miss you. Thank you for your services and good luck in the future. It is going to hurt to see you in blue, but we all know that your heart is red.
The last thing I will probably save for tomorrow is about Arsenal bringing in a defender. I hope we can get one before the window closes.
I’m happy because we got Aubameyang yet sad because Giroud is leaving, but I think it has been a pretty good Transfer Window for Arsenal.
