In addition to decorating supporters directly, Abameyang also spoke with Arsenal legend Ian Wright.
“There is no doubt about signing up for this special club,” he added. ‘I feel like I belong here to our fans, my teammates, my family and everyone in this club. I trust Arsenal. We can achieve great things together. We have something exciting here and I believe it would be best to come to Arsenal. ‘
Arsenal streamed a live video of Abamayang on the Emirates pitch to confirm the news and celebrate striker Facebook’s Ian Ian Wright.
‘Thank you for signing,’ Wright said. ‘Others have left us in the past, but you stayed when we needed you most.’
Arbameyang joined Arsenal in January 2018 on a 56 million move from Dortmund, Borussia Dortmund and has scored an impressive 72 goals in 112 games.
Since Artetta took over as Arsenal manager in December last year, Abameyang has been in the form of electrification.
He led the Gunners to FA Cup glory, which earned them a place in this season’s Europa League. He scored a stunning goal in Arsenal’s Community Shield victory over Liverpool, and found the net in the win against Fulham on the opening day of the current Premier League season.
After winning the FA Cup this year, Abamayang has been friendly about his long-term Arsenal future.
But Michael Arteta has convinced his star striker that his long-term future belongs to Arsenal.
But, by the end of the 2019-20 season, Abameyang was relaxed about his long-term Arsenal future and wanted to see an ambitious summer for recruitment with Arteta.
Speaking after he scored twice in Arsenal’s 2-1 FA Cup final victory against Chelsea, he said, ‘I don’t really think about this. I like to enjoy this with the boys and pick up the trophy. ‘
But Arteta has really overseen a daring summer in north London – switching from London rivals Chelsea for a free transfer to Arsenal Villan and signing defender Gabriel McLaughlin from Lilly.
Danny Cephalos has rejoined Real Madrid on a seasonal loan, while players such as David Luiz and Buccaneer Saga have signed new contracts at Arsenal.

But staying at Arsenal is the end of Abameyang, which is the jewel in the crown of Arteta’s summer work.
‘It’s important that Pierre-Emerick stays with us,’ Artetta said. ‘He’s a great player with an incredible mindset. Being the player who took the least time to reach 50 goals with this club tells you everything you need to know about him and the way he works.
“He’s an important leader for the team and a big part of what we build. He wants to leave his identity there with the best players in the world. He can achieve that here.”
On Tuesday morning he teased the announcement, tweeting a picture of an hour-long class to send Arsenal fans to raptures.
Artetta’s men are next in Premier League action in Saturday’s late game against West Ham.
