Bukayo Saka has retuned to Arsenal for pre-season testing as the Gunners prepare to kick off their Premier League campaign against Brentford next week.

Saka has been on holiday after playing for England at Euro 2020, where he impressed on the team’s run to the final.

The teenager suffered heartbreak against Italy in the final at Wembley, though, as his penalty was saved by goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Saka was subsequently subjected to racist abuse online, however he has received support from staff at Arsenal as well as the club’s fanbase.

Following the completion of Euro 2020, Saka went on a three-week holiday but he has now returned to the club’s training base at London Colney.

The teenager has undergone some pre-season testing and will look to take part in training this week.

Arsenal kick off their Premier League campaign at Brentford on August 13 and Saka will naturally hope to be involved.
