Mikel Arteta confirmed that Thomas Partey who missed AFCON 2023 for Ghana would be making his return to the squad and would be available for selection on Monday, March 4, 2024.

Arteta provided an update on the fitness status of Thomas Partey, indicating that the midfielder has completed a few training sessions with the team and could be available for selection in their upcoming match this weekend.

Partey, who joined Arsenal from Atletico Madrid in the summer, has had a stop-start 2023/2024 season so far, featuring in only four league games due to multiple injury setbacks. Despite this, Arsenal is keen to keep the Ghanaian at the club and hopes he can make a significant contribution in their quest for the title this season.

The club remains optimistic that he will remain fit and healthy for the remainder of the campaign. Partey missed out on the Africa Cup of Nations tournament for Ghana due to injury, but the midfielder may make his return for Arsenal in their next game against Sheffield United, who are struggling at the bottom of the table.
