Aubameyang is said to have felt fine, although talks between Arsenal and the Gabonese football federation over what’s best for the player took place.

Gabon have now confirmed Aubameyang will return England this week after a review of his condition.

Arsenal’s doctors were NOT believed to have been concerned with Aubameyang’s health, but the player has been sent home regardless.

Aubameyang is reportedly one of three Gabon players to be diagnosed with heart lesions last week.

Former Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina and Axel Meye were also said to have lesions on their hearts after catching Covid.

Aubameyang and Lemina were snapped enjoying a night out in Dubai ahead of the rescheduled tournament.
