Arteta talks about the return of Jack Wilshere and the physical state of Emile Smith Rowe

Mikel Arteta talks about the return of Jack Wilshere and the physical state of Emile Smith Rowe

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta on Thursday provided a couple of notable updates on his team’s ranks in the middle of the park.

Elneny joins the absentee list

The issue of midfield ranks at the Emirates, of course, has been at the center of Arsenal’s talk of late.

This comes with the Arteta team, as it stands, worryingly short on reliable options.

After choosing to add just Sambi Lokonga to their deepest ranks of the summer, the Gunners have been forced to deal with a lousy streak of luck.

Star midfielder Thomas Partey, meanwhile, has yet to take his season bow as he continued to fight to stay fit in North London.

First-choice partner Granit Xhaka, meanwhile, will sit out for the club’s next three games, after being sent into an early bathroom against Manchester City during the international break.

And Arsenal’s engine room troubles did not end there, with Mohamed Elneny confirmed to be ready for a period on the sidelines this afternoon, after sustaining a hamstring injury:

“Mo has suffered a hamstring strain and his goal is to be back in full training in two to three weeks.”

‘Always open…’

In turn, it came as no surprise when the issue of midfield options took center stage at Mikel Arteta’s final pre-match press conference on Thursday.

Speaking to the press ahead of a must-see meeting with Norwich City on Saturday, oddly enough, the Spaniard was asked if former Gunners star Jack Wilshere, currently without a club, could be allowed to train with the club in the coming weeks. .

And Arteta, a former Wilshere teammate, seemed very open to the idea, simply confirming that:

‘Our doors are always open.’

Then came an update on the well-being of Granit Xhaka, who (aside from suspension) tested positive for Covid-19 while in international service with Switzerland last week:

He is still in his country. He has to stay there until Saturday, I think. As soon as you are good to travel, you will be here with us.

And the last one was an insight into the status of one of Arsenal’s most offensive midfield stars, ahead of Norwich.

On Emile Smith Rowe, who was forced out of England U21’s meeting with Kosovo on Tuesday due to illness, Arteta confirmed that:

Carries a disease. It has not felt good. Let’s see how it is in the next few days.

When will Takehiro Tomiyasu make his Arsenal debut?
