The former Dortmund striker has missed Arsenal's last two games after being accused of going against the club's rule and regulations even though the player has not made any comment.

Arteta and Arsenal chiefs were also forced to strip Aubameyang captaincy duties at Emirates Stadium.

"Well, he’s not available for the Leeds game, and this is the situation right now." Arteta said.

Thomas Tuchel sends message to Aubameyang after he was axed as Arsenal captain

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel recently weighed in on Aubameyang's situation, saying he does not believe Arsenal's decision to axe Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as captain is reflective of the striker's character.

Aubameyang was stripped of the captaincy role on Tuesday, December 14, with the Gunners confirming the decision, was due to "a disciplinary breach."

Tuchel, who managed Auba at Borussia Dortmund has now waded into the issue, sending his message of support to the Gabonese forward.

Speaking on Auba's predicament, the Blues manager reflected on their time at Dortmund as he promised to reach out to his former player.

Manager Mikel Arteta is yet to provide assurances or timeframe over when the striker might be brought back into the fold.

Despite the absence of the Gabonese, the Gunners were able to see off West Ham to climb to fourth on the Premier League standings.
