THOMAS PARTEY is joining Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in an early return from AFCON after Partey’s Ghana were dumped out at the group stage.

Partey’s return will be a major boost for the Gunners threadbare midfield.

While ex-captain Aubameyang is on his way back to Arsenal after leaving the Gabon camp at Africa Cup of Nations.

The Gabonese FA claimed that they had discovered “cardiac lesions” when they checked Aubameyang’s recovery last Friday and he will now be assessed by Gunners medics.

While the ex-Arsenal skipper dismissed ‘false rumours’ he left the Gabon squad due to indiscipline.

The Arsenal striker did not feature in either of Gabon’s first two group games at the Africa Cup of Nations after testing positive for Covid upon arrival in Cameroon.

And Gabon’s manager said the Gunners were insistent he return as they were unable to perform an MRI scan in the AFCON camp.

Meanwhile on the transfer front, the Gunners have made a £58million bid for top transfer target Dusan Vlahovic of Fiorentina, according to reports.

And Juventus have reportedly identified their replacement for Arsenal target Arthur Melo.
