Arsenal Announce Europa League B-List Players.

After announcing the side’s A-List barely two weeks ago, Arsenal have announced the youngsters that will be included in their UEFA Europa League B-List.

Many were surprised to see some of Arsenal’s youngsters like Bukayo Saka and Reiss Nelson not included in the original list submitted to UEFA, however, this was so Arsenal could include them on the B-List and free up space for other players, though this still led to the omission of William Saliba, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Mesut Özil and Gabriel Martinelli.

Arsenal’s B-List is as follows:
7.) Bukayo Saka
24.) Reiss Nelson
28.) Joe Willock
30.) Edward Nketiah
32.) Emile Smith-Rowe
36.) Ryan Alebiosu
38.) Folarin Balogun
40.) Harrison Clarke*
41.) Ben Cottrell
44.) Karl Jacob Hein
49.) Joel López
50.) Jordan McEneff
53.) Arthur Okonkwo
59.) Thomas Smith
66.) Miguel Azeez

*To be removed.

Unfortuantley for Arsenal, Catalin Cirjan, Joel Ideho, Marcelo Flores, William Saliba, and summer additions Salah Eddine Oulad M’Hand, George Lewis, Tim Akinola, Jonathan Dinzeyi and Nikolaj Möller are unable to be listed int he squad as they have not been at the club for two years.

Youngster Miguel Azeez has been on Mikel Arteta’s radar for a while now.

This will likely come as a blow to young William Saliba, who had been expected to head out on loan, with a move to former club AS Saint-Étienne having been mooted on deadline day and no rumoured move to the Championship materialising.

Youngster Charlie Patino is likely to join the list as well, having signed professional terms over the weekend. He will likely take the place of Harry Clarke, who, although being listed in the B-Team, is likely to be removed after joining Oldham Athletic on loan.

Also included, is young Miguel Azeez, who has been producing some superb performances for the U23s in recent months, with a call-up to the first-team looking more and more likely under Mikel Arteta, especially given his performance over Crawley Town in the EFL Trophy six days ago.
