EPL: Partey included in Arsenal’s squad for US preseason tour

Arsenal

Thomas Partey has been included in Mikel Arteta’s squad for their pre-season tour of America on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old did not travel to Germany for the Gunners’ 5-3 win over Nurnberg on Friday.

That came one week after he returned from a thigh injury to take part in a friendly against Ipswich.

Arsenal’s first Stateside outing comes on Sunday against Everton in Baltimore, Maryland, before friendlies against Orlando City and Chelsea in Orlando, Florida, over the next six days.

They will then return home for a final pre-season fixture against Sevilla in the Emirates Cup on July 30.

The group of players heading off on their tour of America is likely to include a host of stars with uncertain futures, including Hector Bellerin, Nicolas Pepe and Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Leno is also closing in on a £10million switch to newly-promoted Fulham, who are keen to prise him away from north London after he recently entered the final year of his contract.
