Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ‘is LEFT OUT of Arsenal’s mid-season trip to Dubai’ (even though no-contract Jack Wilshere is going!), as they try to offload ex-captain and tell him to train alone in London
- Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang has been exiled by Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta
- The Gunners are looking to get rid of the striker in the January transfer window
- Aubameyang is reportedly uninterested in moving to Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia
Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has reportedly been left in London while the club head to Dubai for a mid-season training camp.
According to The Telegraph, Aubameyang has been told to train his own even though Jack Wilshere, who is not even contracted to Arsenal but has been training with them, is included on the trip.
Arsenal are looking to offload the striker, who is on £350,000-a-week, before the end of the transfer window but The Telegraph adds Aubameyang has no interest in heading to Saudi Arabai, where there is interest from Al-Nassr.

Aubameyang has been exiled by Mikel Arteta after returning late from a trip to France
For Arsenal, that move would make the most sense financially as Al-Nassr are prepared to pay all of his wages.
But with Aubameyang not prepared to move there, Arsenal may have to entertain offers from Europe where less of his wage will be covered.
Manager Mikel Arteta dropped Aubameyang and stripped him of the Arsenal captaincy after he returned late from a trip to France to visit his mother in December.
The Gunners appear to be missing Aubameyang, having scored just one goal in their last five games and have been linked with moves for other forwards in the January window.

They held a serious interest in Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic but he looks set to join Juventus in a £62m move.
Arteta and Arsenal also hold interest in Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
The Gunners are sixth in the Premier League table, two points off fourth-place Manchester United with a game in hand on Ralf Rangnick’s outfit.
They are next in action on February 10, away to Wolves.
