Arsenal midfielder, Thomas Partey back in full training

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey is back in first-team training as he closes in on a return to action.

Partey has been out since the end of October after injuring his thigh during a shooting drill in training.

But Partey is now nearing a return and it is understood that he has taken part in first-team training.

Given his injury record and the length of time he has been out for, Arsenal will not rush his comeback.

But Partey could make the squad for next Tuesday’s trip to Nottingham Forest in the Premier League.

Declan Rice is confident that he will be fit for that match after he was forced off towards the end of Saturday’s 5-0 win over Crystal Palace due to tightness in his hamstring.

The England international has been in fine form since his £105million move from West Ham in the summer and has missed just 73 minutes of Premier League football this season.

Arsenal have a clear week before they travel to Forest, having been knocked out of the FA Cup, and the squad will train as usual at their base in London Colney.
