Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in line to return against Wolves

Arsenal may be able to host striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for Tuesday’s meeting with Wolverhampton Wanderers after completing his period of isolation.

Aubameyang missed the last three games of all competitions while caring for his ailing mother and upon his return to the squad he had to spend time in isolation due to COVID-19 guidelines.

However, the Times notes that Aubameyang participated in a full workout on Monday after testing negative for the virus and is now said to be in contention for Tuesday’s trip to Molineux.

The news will be a huge boost for Arsenal, who have at times seemed a bit lifeless in the absence of the Gabon international.

A 3-1 win over Southampton was excellent, but a 1-0 loss to the Saints in the FA Cup and a 0-0 draw with Manchester United left many fans waiting for Aubameyang to return, who scored twice in his last game for the club – a 3-0 win over Newcastle.

Arsenal could also be with French striker Alexandre Lacazette, who has been put back into shape after recovering from a shoulder injury he suffered against United.

The 29-year-old is the team’s top scorer this season and manager Mikel Arteta has admitted he’s thrilled to see Lacazette bounce back from poor form last year.

“When they are going through difficult times, we have to talk to them, give them tools to solve the problems,” Arteta said.[We worked on] things he needs to read better, about his movements, sometimes about his body language. A lot of things are important [for you] to see you and then try to correct.

Winger Bukayo Saka is also available for the draw after sitting down against United with a hip injury, but Tuesday’s game will come too early for left-back Kieran Tierney, who has complained of pain in his stomach. right leg.

Cedric Soares was the man tasked with replacing Tierney against United and with versatile Ainsley Maitland-Niles starting to join West Brom on loan on deadline day, it looks like Arteta will look to Cedric again for the Wolves game. .
