Arsenal travelling squad for game against Angers announced

Arsenal has announced a 20 man travelling squad for the friendly game in France this evening against Ligue 1 side Angers.

There are no real surprises and Shkodran Mustafi has been included despite all the recent speculation surrounding the German midfielder’s future at the club.

Still no Lucas Torreira but that was expected and of course, there is the usual good sprinkling of youth teams players.

There is no Alexandre Lacazette and hopefully, that is more cautionary than anything else following his early substitution in the game against Lyon at the weekend.

Here is the official travelling squad as announced by Arsenal just a few minutes ago.

The game takes place at the Stade Raymond Kopa and will kick-off at 6.30pm (UK time).

There will be the usual live updates on Arsenal.com and as we all know now the game will also be broadcast live on Premier Sports.

We will bring you the team news as soon as it is released.

    Admin Martin it’s funny how Ornstein said he had no info on whether Umtiti links are true yet the same Ornstein like Charlie Watts quickly rushed to quash the Nicolas Pepe bid instead of keeping quite or doing the same he just did with Umtiti.He almost did same with Torreira last season.Quite embarrasing.Every journalist will get some wrong so don’t make it look like Ornstein wouldn’t. I choose to follow the ITK’s because they are more quicker and reliable for me even though reliability varies from one ITK to the other.
    From all the ITK’s I followed only one was able to confirm the Pepe bid but I was wary of the backlash I’d receive here if I posted news of the bid and it didn’t happen so I pretended to know nothing and banged on a Zaha bid which never came.

      Pls keep quiet now kev. Its pretty eveident that you are trying to keep urself relevant by saying you knew about pepe.

      But in truth you are not able to bare the truth that you were unable to post about pepe before it became a news all over the media.

      Your antics just prove that its just a burn in the a** coz you want everyone to only believe your words as if you are the one that is going to sign on the contracts.

      Last year it was ramsey, this year it is Tierney. Both the times you have pretty much used Done Deal. And then give a wonder definition for the done deal.

      Now simce the window is almost over just post things about our game and players performance or manager’s.

        Most of what you’ve said doesn’t matter that much to me because it’s neither here nor there.Just the usual noise about me being this or that without actual knowledge
        If you don’t believe me about Pepe bid then fine but I’m telling you it was only one ITK that posted the news so I couldn’t report that else if i was wrong there would’ve been a serious backlash.The other ITK’s said the €80m bid was false so I followed the numbers rather than the truth

  3. Sue says:

    No Kolasinac ? No Mesut ?

    From the best ITK in the business on Twitter:

    Nicolas Pepe to Arsenal is ready to be announced. Most of the social/website material is ready and they’re just waiting for the green light to post everything. It should be done this afternoon.

    He also said Pepe’s announcement video is so so good

    I’m really surprised, as are other people, that Bielek hasn’t been given a chance. Emery seems to prefer Medley. When we signed Bielek he was touted to be the next best thing to come out of Poland but despite a good few years getting to know the club, then a good season out on loan he’s been shunned completely. Perhaps Emery just doesn’t rate him but it’s a shabe he hasn’t even been given a chance.

    1. RSH says:

      At least we aren’t selling him for pennies. Crazy that we sell Colombia’s No. 1 for 3mill, and a player who played in League One last season for 10mill.

    2. Jo Gunz says:

      Is Bielik back from holiday?

  9. Lenohappy says:

    Kev seriously just give it a rest, you are becoming more a joke, I don’t remember you ever talking about Pepe and yes some follow your comments and post here but please stop trying to justify yourself everytime. Be more like a man than a kid.

  10. Declan says:

    I think Kev is our ITK and I don’t get all the animosity towards him. He’s been right most of the time and if he really gets on your tits why not just ignore him? Remember a lot of others on here enjoy his transfer talk. Me? I can take him or leave him but I don’t go on about him like he’s some kind of troll. Live and let live eh! Peace and Love to you all.

    F##k me !…………..go easy on Kev !…………..he gets as much gripe as some of the players who we like or dont like !

    On the post……….Where`s Saka ?????
