Arsenal could recall Miguel Azeez from Portsmouth loan in January 0

Posted on September 08, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Mohamed Elneny and Thomas Partey are both set to miss a number of games that month, and possibly in February as well, due to the involvement of their national teams in the African Cup of Nations, and in that period, Mikel Arteta’s ranks in the middle of the park could be stretched thin. That could open the door to Azeez being given a first-team chance at the Emirates.

As we’ve indicated time and time again, there are often things that happen outside of football that remind us about what’s important in life. As reported by BBC, another of those incidents has popped up today as a body has been found at the home of Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny over in Egypt.

Elneny is coming off the back of the Africa Cup of Nations, which was hosted in Egypt. He had returned to the Emirates by the time this incident had occurred, as he found out over the phone about what had happened.

Instead, they’re kind of struggling to make much of a dent when it comes to bringing new guys into the fold, and on the opposite end of the spectrum, they’re struggling to keep hold of some of their biggest names – if the reports are to be believed, that is.
