Arsenal have submitted their Premier League squad for the first half of this season.

There are 21 players on the senior list, with all of the club’s new signings having been included.

Six homegrown players were named on the senior list – Calum Chambers, Rob Holding, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Eddie Nketiah, Aaron Ramsdale and Ben White.

63 players were included on the club’s U21 list, including first-team players Folarin Balogun, Arthur Okonkwo, Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe, Nuno Tavares and Gabriel Martinelli.

All of the club’s new scholars have been named along with recent acquisition Mika Biereth.

The only players who have been left out are the senior players who are on loan, namely Daniel Ballard, Hector Bellerin, Jonathan Dinzeyi, Matteo Guendouzi, Deyan Iliev, Konstantinos Mavropanos, Reiss Nelson, Jordi Osei-Tutu, Alex Runarsson and Lucas Torreira.

Players under 21 who are on loan have been included, with William Saliba (who is spending the season with Marseille) to be classed as homegrown from next season, although he won’t have to be included in the senior squad until 2023.
