GOOD MORNING GUNNERS FANS
Arsenal have been handed a huge fitness boost with THREE key players back in training.
Thomas Partey, Ben White and Gabriel all took part in Monday’s session.
And Mikel Arteta hopes he can call on the trio for Arsenal’s crunch clash against fellow bottom feeders Norwich this weekend.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are prepared to let FIVE first-teamers leave on free transfers next summer.
Football.london claims Arteta and Edu are ready to move the quintet on so they can free up room for fresh faces.
It’s believed Alexandre Lacazette, Eddie Nketiah, Mo Elneny, Calum Chambers and Sead Kolasinac will all be allowed to agree pre-contracts elsewhere come January.
And Arsenal are happy to forgo transfer fees for all of them.
Finally, Willian has opened up on his Arsenal exit.
He told Corinthians TV: “I really thought a lot, together with my family and close people. Unfortunately, my time at Arsenal was not good, I wasn’t happy at the club.
“I don’t need to go into details, but I wasn’t happy and I thought that returning to Brazil was the best option.
“I studied some other opportunities, but I wanted to return to Corinthians, to my home, to be close to my family.
“It’s the club that projected me to the world, revealed me. The right time to come back was this.”
