List of players to arrive next Monday for pre-season
Arsenal’s junior sides began their pre-season preparations at the start of this week while the Gunners welcomed Petr Cech to north London.
However, Arsene Wenger’s first team will not be back in action until next Monday when training officially resumes at London Colney.
The Gunners will begin this summer’s pre-season with a Singapore tour. A friendly against the Singapore Select XI has been scheduled to take place in less than two weeks.
Barring any late fitness concerns, here are the Arsenal players who are set to be welcomed back on Monday.
Notable absentees from the list are Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla, Laurent Koscielny, Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil, Serge Gnabry and English quartet Carl Jenkinson, Kieran Gibbs, Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott who will return late due to their involvement in last month’s international affairs.
Joel Campbell recently played in Costa Rica’s friendly against Mexico while David Ospina and Alexis Sanchez have been busy on Copa America duty.
Indeed, Sanchez is unlikely to participate in this year’s pre-season after helping Chile reach the tournament’s final. The massive clash with Argentina will take place on Saturday.
