Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set for an early return from the Africa Cup Of Nations, according to a report.
The forward is currently on international duty with Gabon at the tournament, but he is yet to play a single game after contracting COVID-19 in the build-up.
So far, he has missed fixtures against Comoros and Ghana, but the striker might end up missing the entire tournament due to health reasons.
According to The Athletic, Aubameyang could end up being sent back to England due to him suffering heart lesions after his bout with the virus.
Decisions are set to be made today following a series of tests that will determine whether or not he is fit enough to play for Gabon if they are able to make it out of the group stage.
If not, then Aubameyang will be making his return to London, where the Arsenal doctors have been kept informed, but are not alarmed.
