Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang is being left in London as Arsenal travel to Dubai for a winter break.

The Telegraph says Aubameyang has been told to train his own even though Jack Wilshere, who is not even contracted to Arsenal but has been training with them, is included on the trip.

Arsenal are looking to offload the striker, who is on £350,000-a-week, before the end of the transfer window but Aubameyang has no interest in heading to Saudi Arabia, where there is interest from Al-Nassr.

For Arsenal, that move would make the most sense financially as Al-Nassr are prepared to pay all of his wages.

But with Aubameyang not prepared to move there, Arsenal may have to entertain offers from Europe where less of his wage will be covered.

Manager Mikel Arteta dropped Aubameyang and stripped him of the Arsenal captaincy after he returned late from a trip to France to visit his mother in December.
