Emery waits for striker news

25th April 2019, 12:36 by Warren Ashurst

A late fitness decision will be made on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to see if he will be available for Arsenal's trip to Leicester.

The former Borussia Dortmund frontman missed Wednesday's 3-1 defeat to Wolves at Molineux and it's since been revealed that he was sidelined after undergoing an operation.

The surgery was confirmed to be a 'small sinus procedure' and the Arsenal medical team will keep a close eye on his progress ahead of Sunday's clash with the Foxes at the King Power Stadium.

Aubameyang was certainly missed against Wolves and the Gunners will give him as much time as possible to prove his fitness ahead of the weekend.

The Gabon international, who is level on 19 goals with Sergio Aguero and Mo Salah at the top of the Premier League scoring charts, scored twice when the two sides met at the Emirates back in October.

Defeat at Wolves means Unai Emery's men remain outside the top four, with just three games remaining - a home clash with relegation-threatened Brighton and a trip to Burnley follow Sunday's encounter with Brendan Rodgers' men.
