Backup goalkeeper Bernd Leno has also been left at home. 90min understands the Gunners and Fulham have been locked in talks over a potential transfer for the German.
Arsenal are scheduled to play three games in the US. First they visit the M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore to face Everton, before further fixtures against Orlando City and Chelsea, both due to be hosted in Florida.
