Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has joined Barcelona on a free transfer from Arsenal.
Arsenal gave the 32-year-old to leave after stripping him of the captaincy in December following a disciplinary issue.
The 32-year-old did not play for the club after December 6 and was left out of their squad for their warm-weather training camp in Dubai.
Aubameyang, who scored 92 goals in 163 games for the Gunners, leaves the Emirates Stadium inside the final 18 months of a contract worth £350,000 a week.
The Gabonese striker had also been linked with a switch to Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr.
The former Arsenal captain’s departure will save the Gunners, who bought him for £56m from Borussia Dortmund in 2018, about £15m in wages. But it leaves boss Mikel Arteta with just Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah as his forwards for the remainder of the season.
Arsenal hopes of finishing top four in the premier league now look impossible with their former captain who helped them win the FA Cup in the 2020/2021 season.
Aubameyang trained with his new teammates this morning despite not having been officially announced yet. He was very close to Dembélé throughout the session.
