According to several British media, Arsenal canceled at the last moment his pre-season internship planned in the United States, due to several cases of coronavirus within its workforce. The Gunners were to face Inter Milan in particular this Sunday.
The health context linked to the coronavirus pandemic continues to upset the plans of professional clubs. According to reports from the British press, Arsenal has canceled its pre-season tour of the United States due to several cases of Covid within its workforce.
The Gunners were due to fly to the United States this week to play the Florida Cup, a friendly pre-season tournament. Two matches were on the program, including one against Inter Milan this Sunday. Next, Arsenal should have faced the winner of the match between Everton and Millonarios, a Colombian side, on July 28.
A calm transfer window so far
Despite Arsenal’s withdrawal, Everton are reportedly still intending to participate in this tournament. As a reminder, the team coached by Mikel Arteta will play their first official match of the season against Brentford on August 13 in the Premier League. Before that, the London side must challenge Chelsea on August 1, and Tottenham on August 8, for other friendlies.
Eighth in the last Premier League season, Arsenal will not take part in a European competition this season. To date, the Gunners’ transfer window has been fairly calm. Mattéo Guendouzi and William Saliba were loaned to OM. In the arrivals department, Belgian midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga (21) was made official on Monday, coming from Anderlecht. Portuguese left-back Nuno Tavares had been announced to him a few days earlier, for a total of 25 million euros invested by Arsenal on these two talents.
