ARSENAL finished off a terrific transfer window, with the arrivals of David Luiz and Kieran Tierney on deadline day.
And Aubameyang got them off to the perfect start with a scrappy victory against Newcastle United and is looking forward to linking up with Nicolas Pepe following his debut – but the Gunners are still looking to get Shkodran Mustafi off the books.

AINSLEY MAITLAND-NILES got the seal of approval for his assist to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang against Newcastle.
STEVE SIDWELL fears Premier League players will soon need bodyguards just to go shopping.
Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac have security guards and dogs patrolling their homes after being caught in a gang feud.
The two Arsenal players were attacked by knife-wielding car-jackers in North London last month, with Kolasinac chasing off the thugs.
It is understood that two men were arrested last Thursday after an altercation with their security staff – but the two stars will miss more matches.
Sidwell warned: “A lot of the players have these dogs and on one command they’re on the attack. Bobby (Zamora) was one of the first to get one and asked me to come over.
“You put on the arm guard and the big shoulder, and he then comes out with the two dogs, says a command and they’re off the leash and on your arm. They drag you down.”
AS of this week, Alexis Sanchez will have banked £41MILLION in wages from Manchester United.
That works out at £8.2m for each of the five goals he has scored for the club since switching from Arsenal in January 2018.
To say Manchester City dodged a bullet is a real understatement.
Alarm bells should have been ringing at Old Trafford when it was clear Sanchez was going to the club that would pay him the most.
They certainly did at the Etihad, which is why they left the way open for his move to the red half of the City.
KIERAN TIERNEY could potentially be playing back at Celtic Park this season after Celtic were dumped out of the Champions League.
The Scottish side lost 4-3 to Romanian outfit Cluj, meaning they have dropped into the Europa League.
Both Arsenal and Celtic could be drawn together in the same group.
IT’S safe to say that Unai Emery LOVED that sliding challenge from Joe Willock on Jonjo Shelvey.
The young midfielder was barged over by the Newcastle ace, only to sprint back and dispossess him off the ball.
