Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been named in Borussia Dortmund's starting XI to face Freiburg despite on-going speculation linking the striker with a move to Arsenal.
Aubameyang was omitted from the Dortmund squad for last weekend's 1-1 draw at Hertha Berlin after his focus was called into question, while the 28-year-old was dropped before the preceding 0-0 draw against Wolfsburg for missing a team meeting.
However, head coach Peter Stoger praised Aubameyang's efforts in training this week and last season's Bundesliga top scorer will lead the line as Dortmund seek a first win since the turn of the year.
Stoger's men have slipped to seventh in the standings but are only three points shy of second-place Eintracht Frankfurt.
BVB: Bürki, Sancho, Sahin, Toljan, Aubameyang, Pulisic, Kagawa, Sokratis, Piszczek, Castro, Toprak January 27, 2018
