share on:

Arsenal trio of Hector Bellerin, Olivier Giroud and Per Mertesacker have all returned to training ahead of the club’s Champions League meeting with Basel on Tuesday.

Giroud has been out since late November with a thigh problem while full-back Bellerin last played in the the north London derby a month ago

Mertesacker, meanwhile, is yet to play at all this season after picking up a serious knee injury in July.

Mertesacker is out of contract next summer and is expected to leave the Emirates, but still has a role to play in the campaign.

Compatriot Shkodran Mustafi has taken his place alongside Laurent Koscielny, but Mertesacker is unlikely to move on until next summer in order to realise his dream of a title win.


Arsenal travel to Switzerland on Monday evening ahead of their mid-week meeting with Basel, who currently bottom of Group A.

The Gunners have already qualified for the knockout stages but could still top the group if results go their way. They are currently level on 11 points with Paris Saint-Germain, who lead them on their head-to-head record.
