Arsenal winger Willian ‘will have to test negative for coronavirus before returning to training at the club’ after travelling to Dubai in international break

  • Arsenal’s Willian will have to record a negative coronavirus test before training
  • The winger visited Dubai during international break and was seen with Salt Bae
  • The UK Government does not advise against travel to the United Arab Emirates
  • But the Gunners are reportedly going to get Willian to take a coronavirus test 

Arsenal’s Willian will have to record a negative coronavirus test to be able to return to training at the club this week, according to a report.

The winger has spent part of the international break in Dubai after not being called up to the Brazil team for November’s matches.

And now Willian will have to take a Covid-19 test and it will have to come back negative before he can train at the Gunners, according to The Telegraph

Although he has not had to self-isolate now back in the UK, the report claims that he will have to take a test for the illness to prove that he has not contracted it.

Willian appeared in a clip on Instagram at the Nusr-Et Steakhouse in Dubai alongside restaurateur Nusret Gokce, also known as Salt Bae, on Monday night.

The latest Government guidance on travelling abroad during the second UK lockdown states: ‘Travelling away from home, including internationally, is restricted from England except in limited circumstances such as for work or for education.’

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will be hoping Willian tests negative for Covid-19 so he can train

Arsenal and Egypt’s Mohamed Elneny has tested positive for coronavirus on international duty

Specifically, the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office does not advise against travel to the United Arab Emirates and from November 14, those returning from the country do not need to self-isolate. 

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta will already be without midfielder Mohamed Elneny for their clash at Leeds on Sunday after he tested positive for coronavirus while away on international duty with Egypt.

Elneny’s positive test followed the coronavirus diagnosis of Egypt team-mate and Liverpool star Mohamed Salah last week, who tested positive just days after attending his brother’s wedding in Cairo last Monday. 

Meanwhile Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang complained he was being held hostage as Gabon were kept in a Gambian airport for six hours until 6am without their passports amid the coronavirus pandemic.
