Pictures: Arsenal training ahead of Thursday as bright 19-year-old joins in
The Gunners are now finishing up their preparations for the kick off to their 2017 pre-season tour on Thursday.
Arsene Wenger’s men have arrived in Australia to begin their summer activity on the pitch with the start of the Premier League campaign only a month away.
Much of the Arsenal first team squad, which includes Alexandre Lacazette, will be lining up against A-League side Sydney FC on Thursday.
And involved in today’s training session was forgotten youngster Ainsley Maitland-Niles who has been in promising form when called upon by Wenger.
Here were a few snapshots from the action as the 19-year-old rubbed shoulders with the senior players.
