Partey joined Arsenal from Atletico Madrid back in 2020 after his £45million release clause was activated – going on to make 59 appearances in total and scoring two goals.

The Nurnberg clash is set to get underway at 4:30pm UK time and could see Mikel Arteta hand outings to several first-team stars in a bid to improve their match fitness.

Arteta has overseen a strenuous week of pre-season preparations following a disappointing end to last season in which they agonisingly missed out on Champions League qualification.

Ian Wright will among those keen to watch the fixture after he admitted that the current squad of their biggest rivals Tottenham was making him feel very jealous.

He said on the Wrighty's House podcast: "I feel Tottenham are going to cause problems. You can’t not be jealous of that summer, especially coming from the other side of North London.

"They are frightening, man. Everything we are doing at Arsenal, and I am putting on as my armour.

"But we have done this. We have (Fabio) Vieira. We have two No10s now. And we are still trying for [Youri] Tielemans. And we have Gabriel Jesus.

"So, you are trying to arm yourself because the Tottenham fans are saying, 'Well, we have Bissouma now, Richarlison, [Harry] Kane, then [Rodrigo] Bentancur is going to kick in and we have seen what [Cristian] Romero is about'.

"When you look at how Tottenham can flex when they are doing it under this manager, it kind of makes me feel s***."
