Aubameyang Arsenal Debut in Doubt due to Illness - Wenger

Aubameyang Arsenal Debut in Doubt due to Illness - Wenger

The Gabon worldwide has already started training with the Gunners but may be forced to wait for his Arsenal debut if fellow January arrival Henrikh Mkhitaryan is given his first start behind Alexandre Lacazette.

The French-born Gabon global scored 141 goals in 213 games across four-and-a-half seasons with Borussia Dortmund. He started yesterday, was still not completely well.

Call it a massive goof-up in the part of the Arsenal media team or whatever but we cannot stress the fact enough that Wenger showed no real excitement over the signing of Aubameyang.

The 28-year-old striker should add more firepower to Arsene Wenger's attack given his impressive record of 141 goals in 213 appearances in all competitions.

Aubameyang joined the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday but has had a fever this week, Wenger told a news conference.

"I will see with the medical department".

And Wenger said: "First of all, let's not be fooled by reality - the financial attraction of the Premier League is superior to everywhere else and that attracts the best players". I wanted to do more but I couldn't.

In what proved to be a busy January for Arsenal, they sold Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud, Francis Coquelin and Mathieu Debuchy as well as sending out a number of young players on loan.

Wenger said: "It was hard, because of course Dortmund needed a replacement".

"He likes the way we play football and I believe he needed a new challenge".

So, it seems that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will definitely feature for the Gunners but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may not return in time.

Jack Wilshere will also be assessed after missing Tuesday's loss at Swansea with an illness.
