THOMAS PARTEY and Kieran Tierney have given Arsenal a huge boost with the pair claimed to be fit for pre-season training.

The Gunners pair both picked up knocks in early April, which saw them miss the last nine and ten Premier League games respectively.

Thomas Partey is reportedly fully fit ahead of reporting back for pre-season training

Partey suffered a thigh injury during the 3-0 defeat against Crystal Palace away at Selhurst Park.

Meanwhile Tierney returned from international duty with a knee injury which required him to have surgery.

Their absence proved to be crucial for Mikel Arteta as the North London outfit narrowly missed out on securing Champions League football.

But the duo are claimed to be fit in time for pre-season training, with first team players due back at London Colney on Monday.

Those that featured in the post-season’s international fixtures will come back at a later date after being given more time to recharge.

Partey wasn’t included in Ghana’s latest squad, while Tierney failed to be named in Scotland’s squad, meaning both men should be back at Arsenal on June 27.

And according to Goal’s Arsenal correspondent Charles Watts, the pair have recovered well from injury, though it is Partey that is further ahead in terms of fitness.

Speaking on his YouTube channel about the pair, Watts said: “From what I understand, Thomas Partey is fine by all accounts.

“He didn’t play for Ghana in the summer, he is fully fit and ready for pre-season.”

Watts then went on to add that he is of the belief that Tierney is also close to being fully fit.

Both Partey and Tierney could be involved in Arsenal’s first match of pre-season when they face German side FC Nurnberg on July 8.

But if Arteta decides they aren’t up to scratch, he could rest them before the club head off five days later to America for their US tour.
