Manager Arteta added: “It was important for Pierre-Emerick to stay with us. He is an exceptional player with an incredible mindset.
“Being the player who took the shortest time to reach 50 goals for this club tells you everything there is to know about him and the way he works.
“He is an important leader for the team and an important part of what we are building. He wants to be there with the best players in the world and make his mark. You can do it here. “
