There are suggestions that the 31-year-old, who scored a hat-trick as the Gunners beat Leeds United 4-2 on Sunday ,
may have broken lockdown rules and the club’s bio secure bubble.
Gunners chiefs are planning talks with the forward after footage of him getting a new tattoo appeared on social media.
Aubameyang was filmed getting his new tattoo on the Instagram account of Spanish tattoo artist Alejandro Nicolas Bernal.
Neither Aubameyang or Bernal were wearing masks during the inking, which saw the Arsenal forward get the tattoo on his hand.
Current UK Government regulations state that all mobile and static tattoo parlors must remain closed during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Arsenal want to determine exactly when Aubameyang got the new tattoo, as that currently remains unclear.
No further action will be taken until the club ascertain for certain whether any rules have been broken and
their own strict bio secure bubble has been breached.
