An update on the wellbeing of Arsenal star Thomas Partey has come to the fore on Friday evening.
For those not aware, midfielder Partey set pulses racing across the red half of north London earlier today.
This came after the 29-year-old was included in Ghana’s starting lineup to face Brazil in a friendly clash, only to be replaced minutes from kick-off.
In turn, it was widely reported that Partey had picked up a fresh fitness concern, the extent of which was yet to be discovered.
As alluded to above, though, late on Friday evening, clarification on the former Atletico Madrid man’s situation has been provided.
And the news has proven of an altogether positive nature from an Arsenal perspective.
It is understood that Partey’s absence against Brazil on Friday came for precautionary reasons, owing to discomfort around his knee.
The midfield standout is therefore expected to be fit and available for selection when Ghana return to action in a meeting with Nicaragua on Tuesday.
