Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey has been left out of Arsenal’s pre-season tour to the United States, which begins on Wednesday, according to The Times.
The 29-year-old is expected to continue training in London with teammates Bernd Leno and Folarin Balogun.
Partey did not travel to Germany for Friday’s 5-3 win over Nurnberg, having played 45 minutes in the 5-1 win over Ipswich Town on his comeback from a thigh injury suffered in April.
Arsenal will play Everton in Baltimore, Maryland, on Sunday, followed by games against Orlando City four days later and Chelsea a week later on Saturday, both in Orlando, Florida.
Partey joined Arsenal from Atletico Madrid in 2020 for 50m euros and has since established himself as one of the team’s most important players.
His serious injury near the end of the season hurt the Gunners as they failed to secure Champions League football.
He has played 48 Premier League games in two seasons, scoring two goals.
