Things have recently turned sour for the Gabonese striker at the Emirates stadium and he has missed the last two games played by the North London side.

Aubameyang's future at Arsenal is now in doubt going by the latest development and he could be leaving the Emirates stadium in January.

According to the report on UK Sun, Emmanuel Frimpong stated clearly that it will be nice for Arsenal chiefs to cash in now in Aubameyang.

"I think it would be good for Arsenal to cash in. Look at his age, he's getting older, and we need a new striker that we can have for the next five years," Frimpong said.
"He’s a great player but this is the best time to cash in. It will be difficult though, as he's on very good wages. It's not going to be easy to get him out."

Aubameyang to train alone

According to latest reports, Aubameyang has been banished from the Arsenal squad as reports further claim the former captain could be on his way out of the club.

It was gathered that the 32-year-old returned late from a trip to France and was consequently let out of the squad for their game against Southampton last weekend.

And the forward was not named in the squad that faced West Ham United in the mid-week, sparking a wave of speculation as to when he would don the Arsenal shirt again.

Latest reports from the club have it that Aubameyang has been barred from training with the first team, indicating is days at the London club are numbered.

Gunners thrash Leeds

In their latest Premier League match, Arsenal punished Leeds for sloppy defending as they ran out comfortable 4-1 winners on Saturday, December 18.

It only took 16 minutes for Arsenal to take the lead through Martinelli, and the in-form youngster doubled his side’s lead 12 minutes later.

Bukayo Saka then put the result beyond doubt at the stroke of halftime with a deflected effort as Leeds were made to pay for some sloppy defending at times.
