Arsenal adds three youngsters to their Europa League squad
Arsenal have added three new players to their Europa League squad, ahead of the game against Molde FK
on Thursday night.
Arsenal adds three youngsters, the trio Omari Giraud-Hutchinson, Zane Monlouis, and Charlie Patino all 17,
could get a chance to shine at the Emirates Stadium
the club just doesn’t have enough spaces available for non-homegrown players. They even had to leave Gabriel
Martinelli out, though that doesn’t matter so much given his long-term injury.
There have been a few changes since the initial list came out. Firstly, Dejan Iliev went on loan and dropped off
the list. That doesn’t mean anyone can replace him, as he was a homegrown player and Arsenal don’t have any
homegrown players left to add.
Secondly, Arsenal confirmed their Europa League B list – an unlimited list of u21 players with pro deals who have
to have been at the club for two years. That part is very important, as it rules out the likes of Martinelli, Saliba, and the summer u23 signings.
The main list is now final for the entire group stage. No one else can join it, even if Arsenal pick up an injury and want to replace someone. However, the B list can change before each match, adding new players when they sign professional deals, etc.
