Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey suggested on his personal Twitter account that he may return “soon” from injury.
The 28-year-old has been out of action for Arsenal since limping off with a thigh injury in the Gunners’ 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace in early April.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta had previously indicated that the Ghanaian’s season was overdue to the injury, before indicating in recent days that the midfielder was making good progress in his recovery.
Following Arsenal’s 2-1 victory over West Ham United on Sunday, the North London club’s official Twitter account shared a video of Gabriel’s goal scored at the London Stadium.
Partey reacted to the tweet on Monday with the phrase “Tom X Tom soon,” which might imply a reunion with Arsenal full-back Takehiro Tomiyasu in the coming weeks.
If Partey recovers more quickly than anticipated, he might make his Arsenal debut against Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, with the Gunners currently leading Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United in the Premier League top four competition.
However, the former Atletico Madrid midfielder faces competition for a starting spot, with Mohamed Elneny impressing with Granit Xhaka in the midfield’s basis.
