Arsenal have submitted their 24-man squad for their pre-season tour of Asia. The Gunners have a number of first-team players missing from the tour for various reasons, a list I will run by you a little later in this piece.
Firstly, here is the list of the players that ARE travelling to Jakarta tomorrow:
Wojciech Szczesny (GK)
Mikel Arteta (c)
Lukasz Fabianski (GK)
Damian Martinez (GK)
You will have probably noticed a few big names missing. Firstly, the captain, Thomas Vermaelen, is missing the tour due to a back injury. Santi Cazorla and Nacho Monreal will miss out due to their involvement in the Confederations Cup this summer and Gervinho will not travel due to sickness.
Arsenal’s only summer signing to date, Yaya Sanogo, will also not be participating in the tour as he is currently in Turkey playing in the under-20 World Cup for France.
