Alex Iwobi in, Nwakali and Akpom miss out of Arsenal pre-season tour team

The Super Eagles forward made the cut for the Gunners’ trip to Australia and China as his compatriots were left behind in London

Alex Iwobi made the 25-man team for Arsenal's pre-season training tour in Sydney, Shanghai and Beijing as Chuba Akpom and Kelechi Nwakali were left out of the squad.

Coming back from his vacation, Iwobi joins new signings Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac for the Gunners off-season trip as they prepare for the 2017-18 league campaign.

Despite training with the Gunners’ first team in the previous week, Akpom and Nwakali were left behind after a season-long loan with Brighton & Hove Albion and MVV Maastricht respectively.

Arsenal will face Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers before facing Bayern Munich and Chelsea.
