Posted on June 24, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Gabriel Martinelli could miss the rest of the 2019/20 season through a knee injury he suffered in training, as reported exclusively by David Ornstein of The Athletic.

Apparently, the injury occurred on Monday, in a session the young forward managed to complete, but he reported the discomfort afterwards. The early signs point to meniscus damage, which, if confirmed, would almost certainly rule him out for the remaining part of the ongoing campaign. Martinelli underwent a scan on Tuesday, and the results are expected today (Wednesday).

As Arsenal prepare to take on Olympiacos in the first leg of the Europa League round of 32 on Thursday, it has been confirmed that both Mesut Ozil and Lucas Torreira aren’t available for selection.

Ozil has been given permission not to travel for personal reasons, and while the club haven’t provided any further details, BBC report that they “understand” the attacking midfielder’s wife is expected to give birth to their first child soon. As for Torreira, the Uruguay international is currently ill and has been left at home for that reason, though if by some chance he recovers in time, he could yet fly to Athens to join the team for the match.

Arsenal are set to resume the Premier League season when they take on Newcastle United at the Emirates on Sunday, following the winter break which reportedly did the team a lot of good. Be that as it may, head coach Mikel Arteta spoke to the press ahead of the game and provided some updates on the situation with injured players.

Left-back Kieran Tierney, who hurt his shoulder by falling awkwardly in the West Ham clash back in December, has been ruled out and will likely need a few weeks more. It was confirmed that he was back in training in Dubai, but it was restricted to strictly non-contact work which obviously means his shoulder is still too sensitive for him to play.

Arsenal have been struggling much with fitness issues lately, especially in the defensive department. Calum Chambers it our for the rest of the season.

Arsenal’s Welsh international midfielder Aaron Ramsey has played his last game for the club. The midfielder picked up a hamstring injury against Napoli in the Europa League second leg, which has ruled him out for the rest of the season.

The 28-year-old is, of course, heading to Italy to join Juventus as a free agent in the summer after failing to agree terms on a contract that expires this summer.

Has enjoyed mixed success

In reality, when we look back at Ramsey’s Arsenal career, there have been many highs and lows. The midfielder is clearly talented, but at times throughout his Gunners career, he has struggled to find consistency.

Struggled to make an impact at Arsenal

Suarez has struggled to make an impact in north London since a January loan switch from Barcelona. Reportedly the Spaniard has cost the Gunners £3.2million in wages and signing-on fee, yet never started for the club. In fact, he has made just over an hour’s worth of football in the Premier League for Arsenal.

Aaron Ramsey was substituted during Arsenal’s win over Napoli on Thursday due to injury, and given the inevitability of his move to Juventus this summer, fears arose among the fans that the Welshman had made his last appearance in an Arsenal shirt.

However, speaking to Sky Sports in an exclusive interview, manager Unai Emery has allayed those fears to an extent, by revealing that the club expect Ramsey back in no more than two or three weeks. That means that, if Arsenal manage to get past Valencia in the Europa League semifinal, he should be back in time to play in the final of the competition which is being played on May 29, at the Olympic Stadium in Baku.
