Thomas Partey will be among the players omitted when Arsenal leave for a pre-season tour to the United States on Wednesday, The Times have reported.
Partey is expected to continue training in London alongside several of his Arsenal teammates, including Bernd Leno and Folarin Balogun.
It is added that the midfielder did not travel to Germany for the 5-3 win over Nurnberg this past Friday, having played 45 minutes in the 5-1 win over Ipswich Town on his return after a thigh injury sustained in April.
