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.

Edu has come under immense criticism in recent weeks over the club's transfer strategy this summer.

Despite being the Premier League's heaviest spenders during this window, the Gunners have endured one of their poorest starts to a league campaign.

The north Londoners splashed over £150million on six new additions who have had little impact on the team.
