Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang welcomes new Arsenal signing Sokratis Papastathopoulos to the north London club
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looked to be in very high spirits as he welcomed Arsenal’s latest signing Sokratis Papastathopoulos to the north London club.
The 30-year-old defender signed for the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund on Monday as he became the north London side’s third recruit of the summer transfer window.
Aubameyang knows Papastathopoulos well, after having played alongside him for Borussia Dortmund for a number of years.
Papastathopoulos was also previously team-mates with Arsenal playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan at the German club.

Arsenal are still believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to try and build a squad at least capable of breaking back into the top four next season.
The north London side ended up in sixth place and without a trophy in Arsene Wenger’s final campaign in charge last term, before he stepped down at the end of the season.
