Arsenal’s newest signing is in line for his Gunners debut against Manchester City on Saturday, having played for Ghana in their 5-1 friendly win over Qatar in Turkey.

According to reports, the midfielder will return to London Colney on Wednesday ahead of Arsenal’s trip to the Etihad, and all going smoothly, will be in contention to play against Pep Guardiola’s side.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has not reported for international duty with Gabon.

The 31-year-old was initially called up for Sunday’s clash against Benin.

However, it has since been revealed that he sustained an ankle injury during the Gunners’ 2-1 win over Sheffield United last weekend and has had to withdraw from the squad.

“After the withdrawal of Mario Lemina, another executive, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, will not be present to face Benin in a friendly match on October 11 in Lisbon,” a statement reads.

According to coach Patrice Neveu: “Aubameyang suffers from a small sprained ankle, contracted on Sunday, during the Premier League match against Sheffield.

“The Arsenal doctor sent me a certificate indicating his unavailability.

“He is in care for a week.”

With that said, it’s not all bad news for Gunners fans as well as manager Mikel Arteta ahead of the clash against Manchester City.
