Arsenal have announced the squad for next week’s Barclays Asia Trophy.
It’s a pretty strong group, but with some notable absences. David Ospina and Alexis Sanchez are on holidays until July 27th and August 3rd respectively, due to their involvement in the Copa America in Chile.
Calum Chambers, who was away with the England U21s at the European Championships, has cut short his holidays to begin his physical preparation, while Danny Welbeck is still not 100% recovered from the knee problem that kept him out at the end of last season.
Tomas Rosicky suffered an injury for the Czech Republic against Iceland and also won’t make the trip, while Petr Cech is included in an Arsenal squad for the first time, along with Wojciech Szczesny and Damian Martinez.
Chuba Akpom, Mikel Arteta, Hector Bellerin, Santi Cazorla, Petr Cech, Calum Chambers, Francis Coquelin, Dan Crowley, Mathieu Debuchy, Mathieu Flamini, Gabriel, Kieran Gibbs, Olivier Giroud, Alex Iwobi, Laurent Koscielny, Emiliano Martinez, Per Mertesacker, Nacho Monreal, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Wojciech Szczesny, Theo Walcott, Chris Willock, Jack Wilshere, Gedion Zelalem
