​Arsenal midfielder Lokonga enjoys return to Anderlecht

Arsenal's Sambi Lokonga is back at Anderlecht during the international break.

Lokonga was not selected for the Belgium squad for the upcoming international matches, which means he misses out on the Nations League semi-finals and potential final.

The 21-year-old, who has made a very impressive start to life at the Emirates Stadium club, is not too fussed about missing out on a place in the squad.

Lokonga is not even in the Belgium Under-21 squad, which means he gets a well-earned rest before the next set of Premier League matches.

"No words needed! The best club in Belgium by far," he wrote on Instagram, when posting content indicating his visit to Anderlecht.

"Happy to be back home."
