Arsenal opened an investigation to determine whether their captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, violated the club’s COVID-19 protocols.
According to a report by The Sun, which claims that the forward has violated current regulations to get a new tattoo on his left hand.
The club bosses will speak with the 31-year-old after a recording of him with a new tattoo appeared on social media.
There are suggestions that Aubameyang, who scored a hat-trick when the Gunners beat Leeds United 4-2 on Sunday, may have broken the Covid-19 rules.
In the video, Aubameyang can be seen receiving a new ink on the Instagram account of Spanish tattoo artist Alejandro Nicolás Bernal. Neither Aubameyang nor Bernal wore masks.
Current UK Government regulations stipulate that all tattoo parlours must remain closed.
A statement from Arsenal said: “We will speak to the player about this matter and establish what has taken place.”
Aubameyang had just returned to Arteta’s team after missing three Premier League matches and FA Cup defeat against Wolves having taken time off to visit his mother, who was ill, in France.
