Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that their striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been left out of this weekend’s squad for the game against Stuttgart due to disciplinary reasons, which will spark fresh rumours over his future at the club.

The Gabon striker has linked himself with a move away from Dortmund on numerous occasions in the last couple of years, with a lucrative switch to China’s Super League one of many moves that have failed to materialise for the prolific 28-year-old forward.

Now he has been left out of the Dortmund squad, with this statement released by the club on their Twitter feed: “Aubameyang has been removed from the squad for tomorrow's match for disciplinary reasons.”

Aubameyang, who has scored an impressive 135 goals for Dortmund since his arrival at the club in 2013, has made no secret of his desire to play for Real Madrid, yet Premier League clubs may be interested in his services if he became available in the upcoming January transfer window.

Chelsea and Manchester United may be in the hunt for fresh attacking options in the next transfer window, yet a move to Liverpool would appear to be unlikely as the player had something of a frosty relationship with Reds boss Jurgen Klopp when the duo worked together at Dortmund.

This is not the first time Aubameyang has fallen foul of the disciplinary code at Dortmund and it may be that the club will soon reach the point where they decide to cut ties with a players whose commitment to their cause has been waning over the last couple of years
