Arsenal have announced the squad for this weekend’s Emirates Cup. The Gunners face Benfica and Sevilla on Saturday and Sunday and Arsene Wenger has selected the following players.

Goalkeepers

Petr Cech, David Ospina, Emi Martinez

Defenders

Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny, Rob Holding, Nacho Monreal, Calum Chambers, Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac, Cohen Bramall

Midfielders

Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alex Iwobi, Granit Xhaka, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Francis Coquelin, Mohamed Elneny, Joe Willock

Forwards

Alexandre Lacazette, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck, Reiss Nelson

There’s no place in the squad for Kieran Gibbs, Mathieu Debuchy, Carl Jenkinson or Lucas Perez Jeff Reine-Adelaide, all of whom were involved in a friendly against Boreham Wood last night and are expected to leave the club this summer.

Jack Wilshere is not included either, we assume because of fitness issues as he’s just returned to first team training, while there’s no place for Jeff Reine-Adelaide either.

Arsenal play Benfica on Saturday and Sevilla on Sunday with both games kicking off at 16.20
