With his mum now on the mend, however, Aubameyang could return to action on the pitch.

Boss Mikel Arteta said: “There’s still some things to clear up.

“Maybe yes, maybe no. We don’t know. We’re still doing some paperwork at the moment.”

Aubameyang last featured on 18 January, when he bagged a brace against Newcastle United in the Premier League.

He subsequently travelled with his team-mates to St Mary’s for the FA Cup tie with Southampton later that week, before rushing home after learning of his mother’s health issues.

The star striker has since missed further games against the Saints and Manchester United.

And he took to social media to thank fans for their support on the matter.

He wrote: “Hey guys, thank you so much for all the messages and calls over the last few days.

“My mother is going through some health issues and I had to be there for her.

“She’s already much better now and I will be back home tonight. I’m more than grateful to the doctors and nurses helping her get through this.

“And of course, thanks to my Arsenal fam for the love yesterday! I’m more determined than ever to keep our momentum going!

“Thank you all again – I really am beyond blessed to receive this level of support and love from all of you and I can’t wait to be back.”

The Gunners take on Wolves knowing that three points would see them climb above rivals Tottenham and Chelsea, ahead of the two sides meeting on Thursday night in North London.
