Arsene Wenger called upon three players from the club’s youth ranks to participate in this morning’s training session ahead of the Premier League clash against Sunderland.
The Arsenal manager has almost a fully-fit squad to choose from for the first time this season as the campaign approaches an end with only four games left to play.
Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Chris Willock and Krystian Bielik were the youth players invited by Wenger and the Gunners’ coaching staff to train with the first team squad on Saturday.
After witnessing the breakthrough of youngsters Hector Bellerin and Alex Iwobi over the past year, the club’s tradition of handing youngsters a chance to feature at the highest level has been preserved.
According to Arsenal youth expert Jeorge Bird, Chris Willock who prefers to play as a striker, is currently the most likely to receive a promotion to the first team.
