Arsenal have submitted their squad ahead of their participation in the NextGen Series, with coach Terry Burton including several surprising selections in his large provisional squad.
Benik Afobe and Chuks Aneke are both included as over-age players for the side that will take on Athletic Bilbao, Marseille and Olympiacos in the group stage, despite the fact that the former has joined Bolton Wanderers on loan, whilst Kyle Ebecilio, Thomas Eisfeld and Serge Gnabry have all also been included.
Hector Bellerin is included, as well as first-year scholars Chuba Akpom, Tom Dallison and Tarum Dawkins. Striker Zak Ansah, currently recovering from injury makes the cut.
Players who withdraw through injury can be replaced if advanced notice is given.
