Arsenal have five players needing to impress Mikel Arteta in pre-season


Eddie Nketiah

Nketiah ended speculation over his future by signing a new contract earlier this summer. He was handed the famous No 14 shirt but will likely start the season as second choice behind new signing Gabriel Jesus.

That is still one place higher in the pecking order than he was at the start of last season. But he will be determined to hit the ground running and prove he can be a regular goalscorer at the top level.


Young Brazilian winger Marquinhos was the first confirmed signing of the summer. He arrives at the club with minimal professional experience behind him at Sao Paulo.

But with Arsenal seemingly failing to lure Raphinha from Leeds, there may be an opportunity for him in cup competitions this season. Pre-season has often been a good opportunity for youngsters to show what they’re all about against top players.
