The 28-year-old striker was not selected in Borussia Dortmund’s squad which drew 1-1 with Hertha Berlin on Friday night and, incredibly, was caught playing an indoor match with pals while the Bundesliga clash was taking place
German outlet Bild have published photographs of Aubameyang during the friendly kickabout and the shirt number on his back will undoubtedly send Arsenal fans into meltdown.
With Sanchez set to complete a £35million transfer to Manchester United, the No.7 shirt will become vacant at the Emirates and Aubameyang has teased Gooners that he could be the man to take it.
The Gabon international was seen wearing Ousmane Dembele’s old No.7 shirt during the indoor game. Many believe the gesture was meant as a message to Arsenal.
Dembele, of course, left Dortmund to join Barcelona ahead of the 2017/18 campaign – is Aubameyang hinting that he’s keen to follow the Frenchman out the exit doors at the Westfalenstadion?
Dortmund chief Michael Zorc rubbished rumours of Aubameyang’s imminent move to Arsenal despite reports suggesting that he’s set to travel to London to discuss the transfer this weekend.
There’s a way back into the team, but professionalism is part of that, and that includes saying you’ve made a mistake in one situation or another,’ Zorc said ahead of Dortmund’s draw with Hertha Berlin.
‘There is nothing really concrete on the table.
‘There’s a lot of rubbish.’
