Sky Sports News reports that a small number of travelers have tested positive after being tested on Monday and Tuesday. The cancellation will certainly disrupt Mikel Arteta’s preparations for the new Premier League campaign, which kicks off at Brentford on August 13.
the Gunners were due to travel to the United States on Wednesday before appearing in the Florida Cup, alongside Everton, Inter Milan and Colombian team Millonarios.
Arteta’s men were due to face Inter on July 25 and then potentially play the winners of Everton’s match against Millionarios.
Arsenal started their preseason in Scotland, where they made two appearances, losing 2-1 to Hibernian and drawing 2-2 with champions Rangers.

Arsenal soften their stance on the star’s exit
Meanwhile, Arsenal have reportedly softened their stance on the terms of Hector Bellerin’s proposed transfer to Italian champions Inter Milan.
The Serie A giants continue efforts to land the seasoned Spanish star, who Gunners are ready to let go this summer. Talks are still at an advanced stage, but an Italian report suggests there has been a change in approach on the part of Mikel Arteta’s men.
TuttoMercatoWeb says Arsenal has “eased its stance slightly”, saying it will now accept an initial loan, provided it includes a binding loan with an option to buy clause that depends on performance targets.
However, at this point Inter are still offering nothing more than a loan option. This means that negotiations will continue for the 26 years, who has been with the Gunners since 2013.
We are still convinced that the agreement will be concluded, Inter and Bellerin already having an agreement in place. The report adds that the defender has been offered a five-year contract, with a salary of € 3.5million per season.
The former Barcelona youth product has also requested an official release. However, it remains only for Inter to agree to Arsenal’s terms for the deal to be ratified.
