Aubameyang is ever close to an exit from Dortmund, after the fans appeared to show their displeasure with a banner slamming the Gabonese ahead of their draw against Freiburg.
The striker is currently the subject of transfer negotiations between Dortmund and Arsenal, with the English side just agreeing to meet their £60 million asking price.
The Gabonese has been left out of the first team squad since December due to disciplinary issues, but was recalled to the starting line up ahead of the match against Freiburg.
The Metro reports that he was photographed playing a five-a-side with friends while Borussia Dortmund were taking on Hertha Berlin earlier in the month, and the fans did not take too lightly to the perceived lack of commitment.
They displayed a banner reading “No player is bigger than the club” as the striker made his way to the pitch for his first outing of the year to remind him that they don’t see him as irreplaceable.
Dortmund have lost their big players over the years, with Gotze, Kagawa, Lewandowski and Mhkitaryan among the most recent, they now risk losing Aubameyang and they have made it known in clear terms that they will survive without him.
The Sporting director Michael Zorc speaking before the match indicated that they will sell Aubameyang if Arsenal meet their asking price.
“We are prepared to implement a transfer under certain parameters – but only if these parameters are fully met. Arsenal has started several attempts so far. We have all rejected so far.
‘Either our demands are fulfilled, then there can be another transfer or else they will not be fulfilled and Auba will play in Dortmund until the summer, so it is also discussed and accepted by the Aubameyang family.”
