Arsenal boss Unai Emery has called up seven of the club’s youth players to train with the first team, according to a report. The Spaniard has had a mixed start to the season with the Gunners, having won two of his opening four Premier League fixtures since his arrival.
Arsenal suffered back-to-back losses against Manchester City and Chelsea to begin the campaign, but they have recovered with two wins from two since. However, the international break has arrived to disrupt momentum somewhat, with key players such as Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka and Henrikh Mkhitaryan all away.
As a result, the Metro reports thatEmery has called on seven of the Gunners’ youth players to fill the spots left by those away on duty. Among those included Gedion Zelalem – back from a serious knee injury earlier in the year – and Emile Smith Rowe, who was impressive in preseason. Charlie Gilmour, Nathan Tormey, Tolaji Bola, Julio Pleguezuelo and Robbie Burton were also present, the Metro claims.
