Arsenal star man and captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was missing from the matchday squad that was selected to play Brentford.

The Gabonese forward alongside fellow striker Alexandre Lacazette both missed the season opener as the Gunners suffered a 2-0 defeat in west London.

The striker duo were ruled out a few hours to kick off with alleged illnesses, which left many surprised and suspicious as the two strikers were involved in training the day before.

There has been talk of a behind the scenes meeting that took place between Arteta and Aubameyang with the Arsenal head coach unimpressed with the strikers form and field performances especially in the recent pre-seasons friendlies.

Sky Sports now report that Arsenal are willing to sell the 32-year-old striker should they receive a reasonable offer. This comes barely a year after Aubameyang penned down a new lucrative three-year contract.

This puts Arsenal in a serious dilemma with the new season already off to a bad start, difficult games approaching and the transfer window close to shutting.
