Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made the most of the international break.
The Gabon international was not part of his side’s 1-0 loss by Mali on Saturday and has instead recently taken a trip to Dubai where he ate at Salt Bae’s Nusr-Et Steakhouse.
The chef posed for photos with the Arsenal star, which he shared on Instagram, but he also took an eye for the striker’s jewellery.
While in a separate Instagram post showing the two, Aubameyang wrote ‘A bit of salt in your life. Thanks for last night, the man himself work hard salt hard’.
The restaurant has already proved popular with the likes of Lionel Messi and Paul Pogba, and has other chains in New York, Abu Dhabi, Istanbul, Miami and Doha with one also due to open in London.
Aubameyang has been in top form for Arsenal since joining from Borussia Dortmund at the start of the year in a deal worth £56million.
The striker has netted an impressive 19 goals in 30 games for the Gunners and they will hope he can continue his fine form after the international break.
Arsenal travel to Bournemouth on Sunday before facing Vorskla in the Europa League ahead of tests against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.
