Toral replaces Reine-Adelaide in Arsenal’s Asia squad


Arsenal’s 27-man squad for the Premier League Asia Trophy set off for the trip today, but there was an alteration to the initial squad list, with Jon Toral replacing Jeff Reine-Adelaide. 

Reine-Adelaide, a recent signing from Lens, was a surprise inclusion in the squad but, for an as yet unidenitifed reason, Toral was drafted in instead. 

Toral has been an Arsenal player for four years and enjoyed a successful loan spell at Brentford last season. The Spaniard will hope to impress sufficiently to earn further first- team opportunities when the season gets underway. 

Meanwhile, Championship side Ipswich Town, who have already taken Ainsley Maitland-Niles on a season-long loan, are confident of agreeing a loan deal with another, as yet unnamed, Arsenal youngster before the start of the new campaign.

  1. Don’t know if its because of injury or what, but nevertheless i think this is fair. Toral was very impressive despite mainly being a bench player last season at Brentford and deserved a chance to prove himself with the first team. Nothing against Adelaide but he’s got a lot more time on his side to prove himself whereas i believe Toral is in his last year.

  2. hey,though its irrelevant to the topic,just wanted know,where the hell is SAMUEL GALINDO,whether his contract has been terminated.thanx in advance
