Arsenal name 24-man squad for Asia Tour

The Arsenal squad fly out to Jakarta on Thursday for the first leg of the Asia Tour 2013 - and the final travelling party has been confirmed.

Youngsters Chuba Akpom, Serge Gnabry, Kris Olsson and Gedion Zelalem have been included in the 24-man group for the matches in Indonesia, Vietnam and Japan.

However, Santi Cazorla and Nacho Monreal will sit out the tour due to their involvement in the Confederations Cup, while Yaya Sanogo is still with France at the Under-20 World Cup.

Thomas Vermaelen will miss the tour in order so he can receive treatment on a back injury, while Gervinho was not due to fly out due to sickness.

Full travelling party

Mikel Arteta
Lukasz Fabianski
Kieran Gibbs
Olivier Giroud
Carl Jenkinson
Laurent Koscielny
Per Mertesacker
Ignasi Miquel
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
Lukas Podolski
Aaron Ramsey
Tomas Rosicky
Bacary Sagna
Wojciech Szczesny
Theo Walcott
Jack Wilshere
Serge Gnabry
Damian Martinez
Kris Olsson
Chuba Akpom
Thomas Eisfeld
Chuks Aneke
Gedion Zelalem

For me there are some questions about this selection. Gervinho to sick to travel? Don't believe that. Does this mean that Chamakh and Park are on their way out? And does it also mean that Joel Campbell will not get a chance this season and will be loaned out again?
I'm very curious to see some of the youngsters like Zelalem who is only 16 years old.
