Arsenal Tour Squad confirmed – Ramsey and Perez in, Ospina out?

So we finally have confirmation of the 25-man Arsenal team to go to Singapore on Sunday for the International Champions Cup games against Atletico Madrid and Paris St Germain.

It certainly looks like Aaron Ramsey will be staying and signing a new contract as he is not being left behind to find a new team, and perhaps Lucas Perez will be staying as our elusive left-winger?

All of our defenders are going as well, including Mustafi, who was also thought to be going out the door although there is no official confirmation.

Interestingly Ospina and Macey are not travelling, so perhaps Martinez will be staying as our third-choice keeper this season.

And a great shout-out to Emery for taking Osei-Tutu, Nelson, Smith-Rowe and Nketiah out of our youngsters to give them a chance to impress.

Here is the full Arsenal squad….

      Haters (Phil and co.) shove it up your a$$

      1. Phil

        Let’s just wait and see how many games he plays this season shall we?Do YOU seriously believe this MUG will get into the side?He MIGHT get a place on the bench during winter.Thats only because he can flap his arms up and down to keep the other substitutes warm.Other than that there is NO PLACE for this USELESS TWAT of a player that proved last season he is simply not good enough to play for ANY top flight side.He proved his value at the World Cup when he couldn’t even get into the worst African Team in history.

            @Phelyx
            I’m sure Phil knows that but thanks anyway for pointing it out. Like they say “HATING IS ALLOWED” so Phil my dear, carry on 😂

            Let’s wait till the season starts, I’m sure I’ll be seeing less of your comments by then when IWOBI starts performing week in week out.

          1. Phil

            Hi Ken-I have no idea why Monreal isn’t travelling,He didn’t have to over exert himself in Russia so could only be because of a knock.There was talk of the Club receiving an offer for him but I can’t see us letting him go without a replacement.

          2. Khadii

            World cup happened to monreal, despite d fact he didn’t play for spain, but unlike germany spain actually got past the group stage….meaning an extended break

        1. Sparkles

          You are just a hater. Firstly, that Nigerian team wasnt the worse team at the tournament, let alone the worse in history. Secondly, Iwobi was hugely mismanaged. He was played in many positions some of which he hadn’t played in all his life before last season. You are not smarter than the coach. He was kept in the team for a reason. Welbeck is about leaving but Iwobi is staying. That should tell you something. So stop hating because you will never be half the guy he is.

        2. Uchman

          The last time I checked iwobi is still an arsenal player,highly rated and of good value, but the last time I checked u r still here ranting, it’s just a pity, kip ranting bro while dude kips making name for himself

        3. Bobby

          @Phil : Iwobi was not our worst player last season so tell us exactly what you have against him ?! maybe that will help us understand you better. And its so obvious you just hate this guy so much that you referred to our country as the worst African team at the WC when actually, we are the 2nd best after Senegal

  1. perfect

    I have always believed in the quality of Perez.
    iwobi should be allowed to get a new club

    1. gotanidea

      He was good as a left winger, but lacked the mobility when playing as a right winger. Perhaps he needs more time there, if Emery plans to use him as an inverted winger, because Aubameyang plays very well on the left side

      About Ramsey, Perez and Mustafi transfer rumors, Chamberlain also took part in pre-season matches before he left. I think Arsenal are waiting for selling some of them, before purchasing new players

      Glad to see the youngsters are included, but I wished they also include Adelaide and Macey. This could mean Macey would be offloaded, since Arsenal already have many GKs

  2. Auba Arsenal of Lagos

    I have high hopes for this boy Smith Rowe.I so much hope he breaks out excellently & become our own latest revelation

    1. gotanidea

      Ramsey was also very skillful and quick when he was very young, but Ryan Shawcross’ brutal tackle seemed to have changed his mentality

      I hope what happened to Eduardo Costa and Ramsey will not happen to our wonderkids, because Arsenal need them in the future

  3. Victoria Concordia Crescit

    Chuba Akpom permanent transfer to Sint-Truide for £2 million will be announced in the coming days.

    Might be looking too much into it, but Rambo’s picture is not on that squad announcement. He should have been one of the first players on there. Slightly worrying… Also gutted that Jeff missed out. I hope we send him on loan this season and he is in our long term plans.

  4. SIRJOE

    YOU DO REALIZE THAT OSPINA IS STILL ON HOLIDAY RIGHT? SO HE COULDN’T HAVE MADE IT TO SINGAPOLE

    Good to see OZil is back in the squad..I would like to know who most gooners would prefer as our no. 10 if it was down to choosing between Ozil and Mikhitaryan..Personally. I would take Mikhi with my eyes closed as he is an all rounded footballer…My opinion though

    1. Victoria Concordia Crescit

      I’d take Mkhi too. he’s an all rounder .

      he’s technical
      has a good pass in him
      great shot
      can tackle
      runs around a lot .

      he’s better than Ozil in my opinion .

  6. Counsel

    OT: I collapsed when a client I was represented in a criminal was sentenced to death she was waiting the hangman ,but we put up a spirited defense to stay the implementation of orders pending appeal.This was my lowest moment as a lawyer.I was not able to follow the site for several weeks but yesterday I heard Coman is a done deal waiting announcement is that the case @ kev

          1. Phil

            @counsel-I’m not sure if you have much British TV where you are from.Im not even sure if you have electricity.But you describing your Legal experience immediately brought to mind an episode of Blackadder Goes Fourth.Basically George (Hugh Laurie)defends Captain Blackadder (Rowan Atkinson) on the criminal charge of eating General Melchip’s prize pigeon (Speckled Jim).He lost the case and Blackadder was sentenced to death by firing squad.Somehow it all got sorted and he wasn’t shot.I don’t know why but I thought of this as you wrote of how you have got a stay of execution.Which is more than George got Blackadder so very well done.
            I must say that the programme will live forever in British Comedy Folklore.Probably the same as your case

        1. fluent

          Ruth Kamande…..this caught my eye…judge said that she is basically a psychopath. ..

    there are reports flying around that Jose Mourinho is asking for a change of rule so he can play 2 or 3 goal keepers at the same time. Mourinhos initial proposal was 5 goalkeepers with the bus behind ’em. Trimmed it down to 2 after that was rejected

  8. Waal2waal

    in the wake of youngsters like mbappe the young guns like reiss nelson and nketiah would do well to view their singapore chance as a golden opportunity to distinguish themselves and introduce themselves to the wider fan base and to the world with performances that merit their inclusion in this resurgent arsenal squad. Of these two it occurs to me that nketiah has performed much the better when called upon to play at a higher level – this being despite nelson touted as the goal machine among these two. i suspect that it’s nketiah that is the more likely to succeed and merit a sustained place playing for the gunners.

    Before the season starts I am preying emery and the board get Ramsey contract sorted out.. make him captain if need be (let’s be honest we need a captain who will carry this team for the next 5 years.. kos is unfortunately not up for it and I think his latest injury will knock him for 6 and he won’t recover to a high enough standard) so who else is up for the task? Hmmmm no one springs to mind

    I believe we are still active in the transfer market.. but we need to

    loan out.. holding, Jeff, nekita
    Sell.. Ospina, jenkinson, Elneny, welbeck, akpom

    Then hopefully pull off a big impact Ozil style signing just before the season starts.. someone like Coman or a cheeky bid for martial?? We need that winger/forward but with good stamina who else is out there? Douglas Costa maybe? But the one I want is dembele.. but on loan.. wot a treat that would be!! Hopefully we got one more signing in us.. but hey i can dream right?

    Really wanted Jeff to be included tough break, but understandable, no complaint otherwise. Very happy for Smith-Rowe and Tutu, expected Nelson and Eddie. Looking forward to the tour.

  11. Arnoldhino

    This is going to be a good year… if we stay healthy the team looks good… Ramsey is quality of you have a dm and let him bomb forward… and the strikers are legit… the defense isn’t world class but is solid and that can work… I’m excited

  12. Arsenal fan

    I like how Jeff looked in the last friendly. Well, hope we send him out on loan (keep him) .

    I like Perez a lot . our attack needs more speed.
    Iwobi is only 22 I think? He has to step up now or never. He’s technical ability is good but consistency is lacking.
    Welbeck should be sold to fund another winger (Coman?).

    Smith-Rowe plays like De Bruyne but a bit faster 😜
    Osei tutu to replace ageing Monreal? Nacho is better than Holding & Chambers when played as a CB so we need him.

    Aubameyang to score at least 20 league goals? Yes😘
