Arteta gives an update on the return of Thomas Partey to training

There have been rumours circulating that Thomas Partey is back in training and will be part of the Ghana squad for the AFCON next year.

Contrary to speculation, Partey is not back in training, and Arteta has provided this clarification. The Ghanaian midfielder, who has faced injury challenges during his time with Arsenal, is currently in a critical phase of his career with the Gunners.

Arteta’s side has been making efforts to get Partey into peak condition, but the player has struggled to maintain fitness over an extended period. Despite reports suggesting that he is fit and training, Arteta, when asked about the potential return of Partey before international duty, said as quoted by the Daily Mail.

“There is a chance. We’ll have to see. They haven’t trained yet but hopefully, they can evolve in the right way.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Partey’s poor fitness has been a big issue for us as a club, and the midfielder has to leave at the end of this season.

If a good offer comes for his signature next month, we also need to consider offloading him.

  1. Thomas Partey reminds me of a bad foot thoroughbred horse, once his legs holds up he will easily blows the opposition apart.

    Sometimes the best defenders midfielders attract attention more when they aren’t there than when they are, no Partey, no party?
    Though the world class player may not quite be our modern day invincible, he isn’t far off if you ask me.

    But it is the bold bid and capture of Declan Rice shows Arsenal recognized the need for an alternative

    Defensive midfielders may now be committing superstar style price’s, Rodri is integral to the Citizens so is Casemiro to United

  2. When someone says Partey should leave, He must include the reason as to why he thinks so. It’s only and only because of injury problems and not anything related to his performance on the pitch. Our captain Martin is not as sharp as he was last season and accept it or not Partey’s absence has affected him. Partey was the reason why we defeated Man City at the emirates. Remember the long pass he directed to Tomiyasu.

    I also think RICE would show the world he’s a real beast if Partey was available. Partey’s long through passes are terrific. I think having TIMBER and PARTEY plus a new world class goal scorer in the Arsenal lineup would make our team absolutely horrible to the extent of eliminating the likes of Inter, Real Madrid and Manchester City from the Champions League. I also conclude by saying that the 4-2-3-1 formation is better than 4-3-3 for our team. Nice time

    1. True, we miss Partey and those Hollywood passes.
      Surely there is a huge place for a next commanding midfielder in the team one that is mobile technical and physical.
      It was a bit short sighted that whole idea was abandoned in the summer, we miss those 25 yards screamers from Xhaka as well.

      The squad is still dangerously thin if you ask me?

    2. Not a word is out of place!
      I just pray and hope he’s managed best to get to his usual self, but with age and history of his injuries, it’s quite a daunting ask.
      We will see.

  3. I remember in the last match which Partey played, his bisecting pass got him an assist. We haven’t seen many assists by our players for so long.

    Salah top the league with 8 assists while Saka has 5 assists. Saka is in 9 to 16th position as there are 9 players with 5 assists. Our captain has 4 assists & no Arsenal players has 3 assists.
