Picture: 22-year-old joins Arsenal squad in training ahead of Atletico Madrid second leg

The Gunners are wrapping up their preparations for the clash against Atletico Madrid in the Europa League on Thursday night. 

Arsene Wenger is looking to finish off the 2017/18 season on a high note after announcing about two weeks ago that he would be leaving his role at the end of the campaign.

After last Sunday’s defeat at Manchester United which ensured that a top four finish in the Premier League is no longer mathematically possible, the Gunners are now aware that winning the Europa League is their only option.

Wenger is expected to make a few changes to his starting line-up for the trip to Spain after the frustrating 1-1 draw at the Emirates stadium last week.

Alex Iwobi, who has endured an erratic season thus far, will be hoping for a place in the team even though his playing time has been reduced in recent weeks.

And here were a few pictures as the 22-year-old joined the rest of the squad in training on Wednesday…
