White, who was a record summer signing for Arsenal has been absent since his side's 2-0 loss against Chelsea after he tested positive for coronavirus.

He, however, has already made his debut for the Emirates outfit having featured in the side's campaign curtain-raiser against newly-promoted Brentford.

Metro UK now reports all the three took part in Monday's training session and could be in contention to play when Arsenal face off against Norwich on Saturday, September 11.

The north Londoners will be desperate to use the tie to get their campaign back on track, having lost all three matches of the new season.

Incidentally, Arteta's men are also yet to find the back of the net thus far this season in a woeful run of results that has them rocked bottom of the league standings.
