Thomas Partey was reportedly left “furious” after an incident with a promising youngster as he clattered the experienced Ghanaian in training.
The 28-year-old has struggled with injuries since joining the Gunners in October 2020, making just 31 Premier League appearances to date.
As football.london reports, 20-year-old Tim Akinola went into a 50/50 challenge with Partey at London Colney, potentially injuring one of Arsenal’s most important players.
Partey is believed to have been angry with Akinola at the time but later told the him he was the strongest player he’d ever played with.
The youngster is also said to have impressed manager Mikel Arteta with his commitment and work rate – and a first-team debut could be on the horizon.
