Arsenal striker Aubameyang may leave Gabon AFCON squad early

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may leave Gabon’s Africa Cup of Nations squad early due to health issues.

He has missed Gabon’s clashes with Comoros and Ghana with medical staff announcing heart lesions found.

Arsenal were keen to stress over the weekend that the player is feeling fine, but talks are ongoing as to what the best outcome for the player is.

The Athletic says that could involve Aubameyang returning to the UK this week, after his condition is reviewed.

The publication sates that Monday will be key to deciding plans for the former Arsenal captain, with discussions and tests set to ascertain whether he will be able to play either on Tuesday or beyond, should Gabon progress.
