Nwakali amongst ten youngsters to train with Arsenal first-team


Arsenal trained at London Colney today, and, whilst most of the focus was, inevitably, on the new signings Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez, who had their first session with the club, there was another summer arrival on show, with Kelechi Nwakali joining the squad.

Nwakali, the talented Nigerian midfielder, completed his protracted move to Arsenal this summer before being loaned out to Dutch second divsion side Maastricht.

Paperwork still needs to be completed before he can officially link up with his loan club, but Nwakali will doubtless be delighted to have trained with the squad, with players such as Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott, Nacho Monreal and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain amongst those involved today.

There were also a host of other youngsters called upon, as Krystian Bielik, Chiori Johnson, Matt Macey, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Stephy Mavididi, Gedion Zelalem, Ben Sheaf, Savvas Mourgos and Chris Willock also trained.
