Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could reportedly return in time to face Everton next Friday after contracting malaria on international duty.

Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could reportedly be welcomed back to the team for their Premier League clash with Everton on April 23.

The Gunners initially reported that his absence against Sheffield United was down to flu, but the Gabon international confirmed that he had contracted malaria before their Europa League thrashing of Slavia Prague.

Aubameyang was admitted to hospital with the disease, but Mikel Arteta has confirmed that his skipper is now feeling better and on the road to recovery.

The Gunners have already confirmed that the striker will not be available for Sunday's clash with Fulham, but ESPN claims that he could return to the fold for Friday's battle with Everton.

Aubameyang should therefore be given the green light to reunite with former manager Unai Emery in their Europa League semi-final against Villarreal, but he has endured a frustrating season overall with nine goals in 25 Premier League appearances.

Alexandre Lacazette struck back-to-back braces against Sheffield United and Slavia in Aubameyang's absence, and the former Borussia Dortmund man joins Martin Odegaard, Kieran Tierney and David Luiz in the treatment room.
