Including links to hosted images will result in Outlook malformed signature and Outlook showing the "download external images" warning. Even increasing the spam score in some cases.

Anyway, I just tested this with image hosted on google drive and it seems to work fine in Outlook 2016. Make sure you are using a link that actually exposes the image directly, like described for example here: http://blog.interlockit.com/2014/02/embed-image-in-your-google-apps.html
