Borussia Dortmund quash transfer talk surrounding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after the Arsenal target missed training

Social Spy

Borussia Dortmund insist Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed training due to personal reasons on Tuesday amid talk of a potential move to Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger has been linked with a £42m bid for the Gabon international as the Gunners manager looks to bolster his attacking options ahead of their title push in the second half of the season.

Former Saint-Etienne forward Aubameyang has been in stunning form for Dortmund so far this season, scoring a staggering 24 goals in 23 games in all competitions.

Naturally, the 26-year-old’s absence from training prompted speculation that Aubameyang could be on the move, highlighted by Twitter user IndyKaila.

However, the Bundesliga side addressed the question posed by IndyKaila in emphatic fashion, insisting there was nothing suspicious about the striker’s absence.

Arsenal have also been linked with a move for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema in the January transfer window.
