Sportsmail has previously reported that there was a degree of confusion over the situation, and manager Arteta has revealed Aubameyang will now undergo tests.
Quizzed on the star, he said: ‘He’s in London and going through some examinations because we haven’t had any clarity from Gabon about why he came back.

‘So it’s our obligation to make sure he’s safe and in good condition. So far historically with what we’ve done with the player that’s never been an issue.’
it remains to be seen whether Arteta will welcome him back in from the cold after stripping him of the captaincy and dropping him.
When asked whether the 32-year-old will ever play for him again, he added: ‘He contracted Covid and then the national team decided to bring him back here.
‘We need to make sure the player’s health is in the best possible condition and then we’ll see what happens.’
