Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was left behind on Thursday when the Borussia Dortmund squad made their trip to the German capital to face Hertha Berlin.

Aubameyang has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal this month, though Arsene Wenger was reluctant to discuss the Gunners’ interest on Thursday morning.

The Gabon striker was due to travel with his team-mates for their Bundesliga clash with Hertha Berlin on Friday night, but Aubameyang was absent when the rest of Dortmund’s staff flew on Thursday evening.


Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc confirmed that Aubameyang would stay and train in Dortmund.

“We feel that his head is not 100% on the matter,” he said. “It’s a difficult situation.”
