Mesut Ozil, Petr Cech and Jack Wilshere all trained on Wednesday ahead of Arsenal's Europa League semi-final clash with Atletico Madrid.

The trio, as well as full-back Sead Kolasinac, missed Sunday's 4-1 Premier League win over West Ham with minor complaints, but all were part of the squad working at London Colney.

Ozil was ill, while Cech had a minor hip injury as Wilshere and Kolasinac were sidelined with ankle problems.

Mohamed Elneny was carried off on a stretcher on the stroke of half-time with ankle ligament damage, although Arsenal are hopeful he will play again this season.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is also absent, but could feature in the second leg in Madrid next week, having trained away from the group on Wednesday.

The news will be a boost to outgoing Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger as he looks to end his near-22 year tenure with a European trophy, especially as Atletico themselves were given good news as former Chelsea forward Diego Costa was passed fit to travel to London following a hamstring injury.

Fernando Torres confirmed at an event today that he will leave boyhood club Atletico Madrid at the end of the season.

The 34-year-old did not declare where his next move would be.

Torres came through the youth system at Atletico before breaking into the first team in 2001. He soon became the youngest ever captain of the club at the age of 19.

After scoring 91 goals in 244 games he moved to Liverpool where he was a huge success.

In his debut season at Anfield he scored 33 goals before going on to score an impressive 81 in 142 games over his three-and-a-half seasons with Liverpool.

He moved to Chelsea in 2011 for a then-record fee of £50m however his spell in West London was largely disappointing.

After a brief spell with AC Milan he returned to Atletico and scored twice on his second debut against rivals Real Madrid.

He notched his 100th goal for Atleti in February 2016 in the same season they reached the Champions League final only to be beaten on penalties by Real.

The club have announced meanwhile they will pay tribute to Torres in their final home game of the season against Eibar.

Fernando Torres deserves the best of farewells as a player of Atlético de Madrid, and that is why I am sure that the fans will join us on such a special day. We are already working to make it an unforgettable day for the Atlético family and especially for Fernando

– Enrique Cerezo - Atletico's President
