After a tour to Australia and China, the Arsenal players are back at London Colney preparing for the Emirates Cup this weekend, and for the new season which kicks off just over two weeks from now.
The Gunners begin the new campaign with a Friday night kick-off against Leicester City, a game which takes place just five days after the Community Shield showdown with Chelsea.
One man back in action today in an Arsenal shirt was Jack Wilshere. The England midfielder looks to be making a good recovery from the broken leg he suffered at the end of last season, and was involved fully in the training routines.
There have been reports that he is to be allowed leave Arsenal, but despite some interest from Swansea and Turkish side Antalyaspor there haven’t been any firm bids for the 25 year old.
It’s thought he is not open to a move abroad and would like to stay in the Premier League, but Arseblog News understands Wilshere is not agitating for a move, and could spend the next 12 months at the club before leaving on a free next summer.
It remains to be seen what kind of plans Arsene Wenger has for him this season, but being back in full training is certainly a step forward.
Also back in training after their summer exploits at the European U21 Championships were Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding, and Calum Chambers.
