Arsenal U19s have arrived in South Africa as they bid to retain the Durban International Cup.
The young Gunners won the competition in impressive style last year and will take on KZN Academy, Sporting Lisbon and Golden Arrows in the group stages. The competition gets underway tomorrow.
Arsenal have named a strong squad for the tournament, with Donyell Malen, Stephy Mavididi, Ben Sheaf, Reiss Nelson and Emile Smith-Rowe amongst those included.
Also involved is midfielder Marcelo Allende, who is set to train with the club until September. A Chilean youth international who has captained his country at U17 level, it remains to be seen whether Allende will be offered a professional deal by the Gunners.
Arsenal squad: Hugo Keto, Ben Sheaf, Stephy Mavididi, Kristopher Da Graca, Savvas Mourgos, Marcus McGuane, Josh DaSilva, Donyell Malen, Nathan Tella, Joe Willock, Eddie Nketiah, Jordi Osei-Tutu, Kostas Pileas, Tolaji Bola, Reiss Nelson, Emile Smith-Rowe, Toby Omole, Marcelo Allende.
