Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's message is clear: he is "really happy" at the club and fully appreciative of the bond he has with our fans.
The Gabon international is our top scorer this season and chasing another Golden Boot, but says feeling the love from our supporters was crucial in helping him get over his recent late miss against Olympiacos.
"It means a lot [to play here]," Aubameyang said. "When I was younger I used to watch Arsenal because they always had great players and they won trophies as well. I think it is really a pleasure to be here, I am really happy - that's my feeling.
"I love the fans here. On my Insta, I am happy I have them because after this miss [against Olympiacos] everyone could say 'he killed us today' but [instead] everybody sent me messages to say 'keep your head up' and stuff like that' so I am just happy to have them and happy with them.
"When I came back home [after the Olympiacos game], I saw my kids and they talked to me and said, 'don't worry this can happen'. I am glad to have them, it's true that it is cruel, but that's football.
"I try to always be ready, whatever happens. That's why I say, when I look at myself, that I have to be ready so I do all the stuff, I try to be fit every game and for the moment it is working well."
