OFFICIAL: Bendtner & Almunia Axed From Arsenal’s Asia Tour Party – Nasri Included

By on July 9, 2011

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has named his squad for the Gunners tour of Asia, and the Frenchman has left behind goalkeeper Manuel Almunia and striker Nicklas Bendtner fuelling speculation the pair will leave the club this summer.

As announced yesterday, captain Cesc Fabregas picked up a very convenient hamstring injury and has remained in London to ‘undergo treatment’, also known as ‘push through his transfer to Barcelona’. Emmanuel Eboue also misses out with an injury, although Samir Nasri does make the trip despite his current contract dispute and Japanese starlet Ryo Miyaichi is also included.

The full squad which is due to leave tomorrow:

  • Wojciech Szczesny
  • Vito Mannone
  • Sebastien Squillaci
  • Johan Djourou
  • Kieran Gibbs
  • Carl Jenkinson
  • Laurent Koscielny
  • Armand Traore
  • Thomas Vermaelen
  • Bacary Sagna
  • Alex Song
  • Jack Wilshere
  • Tomas Rosicky
  • Denilson
  • Aaron Ramsey
  • Emmanuel Frimpong
  • Samir Nasri
  • Ryo Miyaichi
  • Carlos Vela
  • Robin van Persie
  • Marouane Chamakh
  • Andrey Arshavin
  • Theo Walcott

    What is the point in taking denilson. This only only means that he is now going to stay. After what he said in the press there is no way any arsenal fan will accept him being on the bench let alone the team. Its a joke.

    Looking at the squad’s name, I have a gut feeling we would finish 6/7 next season… Get Samba or Cahill and where the hell is Gervinho?? has he signed or not…

    Wenger should not loose focus on the transfer actions as he travels to Asia. We need some experienced players to turn our fortunes round.

    I cannot believe that we have so many injuries already, usual suspects Diaby and Fabregas do not suprise me, but Fabianski is alittle worrying and Eboue.
    Where the hell is Kyle Bartley and Henri Lansbury? Surely Lansbury should be going ahead of Denilson?

    I expected Gavinho and Lansbury on that list, Wenger work harder and bring in at least Cahill and samba. JUAN MATA would also be a good addition. Let Cesc go

    I just dont understand what’s the matter with wenger. For god sake he has been doing same thing for the last six years without any result. A normal person will have to change style to gain result. That man’s head need 2 be closely examined
