Zelalem among seven youngsters to train with Arsenal senior squad

Gedion Zelalem was among seven youngsters to train with Arsenal's first team yesterday.

Jeorge Bird's Arsenal academy website reports Zelalem is back after 16 months on the sidelines injured.

Emile Smith Rowe had been named in the England U19 squad but instead remained at Arsenal, and he was joined in the training session by Julio Pleguezuelo, Robbie Burton, Charlie Gilmour and Nathan Tormey.

Intriguingly, Tolaji Bola also trained and the left-back, who has yet to make a senior appearance, must surely be in contention to be involved in the Carabao Cup at least given the club's current lack of backup options in his position.
