Darren Bent has stated on Twitter that Arsenal fans can ‘finally believe’ after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang signed a new contract on Tuesday.
The former striker then responded to a jibe from Tottenham fan who stated ‘believe in what? Finishing 8th again?’ to which Bent replied, ‘I bet they finish above Spurs’.
For months and months now, Arsenal fans have been waiting for the best news of their summer that Aubameyang has added more years to his career in North London.
And yesterday, they were provided with the news that they were waiting for, with BBC Sport reporting that it’s a three-year deal the 31-year-old has signed.
Boyhood Arsenal fan and former Spurs striker, Bent, understandably thinks this is very good news for one side of North London.
As always, the rivalry between Spurs and Arsenal will be frantic once again this season and they will be hoping to get the better of one another.
Aubameyang will be massive for Mikel Arteta’s chances of breaking into the top-four, whilst Spurs need some fresh faces in the transfer market in order to restore some life into their season.
Even though one game has been played, it does seem as though that the team needs a lift because this campaign is crucial for all parties in North London.
