Cirjan, Azeez and Cottrell train with Arsenal first-team ahead of Southampton trip

Midfield trio Catalin Cirjan, Ben Cottrell and Miguel Azeez all trained with the first-team squad today.

Mikel Arteta’s squad were undergoing their final preparations ahead of tomorrow night’s trip to face Southampton in the Premier League as they look to bounce back from the FA Cup defeat to the same opponents.

Cirjan, Cottrell and Azeez all featured for the U23s in their victory against Brighton & Hove Albion. Azeez, who found the net, produced an excellent display.

Kido Taylor-Hart, Nikolaj Moller and Tim Akinola were also involved in first-team training.


  1. Thanks for the posts Jeorge, with regards to the Balogun situation it might be a salient point to remember that the highly regarded trio of Arthur Okonkwo, Miguel Azeez and Matt Smith are also all out of contract in the summer and that’s maybe a lot to leave until the close season.
    Any news regarding any new contracts for these lads?
