Wenger, speaking to arsenal.com has said Cesc Fabregas will not be travelling with the Arsenal squad to Asia due to a muscular problem. Emmanuel Eboue is a doubt for the trip after injuring his calf. He said,
“We will take the strongest possible squad, Fabregas will not travel because he still has a small muscular problem. He will stay and practice here. There is a doubt about Eboue who has done his calf.”
Wenger has also said Ryo Miyachi will be in the squad for the tour. The Japanese forward enjoyed a impressive half season on loan for Dutch club Fenyoord, and has impressed Arsene Wenger so far in pre season training, which started on Monday. He said,
“He is on the plane because he is quality, We want to give him a chance to show his quality and I think everybody will be curious to see him play in Asia.
“I rate him personally [and] it’s a good opportunity for him to show that he has the talent to play for Arsenal Football Club. He has an opportunity to show that [he is good enough for the first team].
“He has done extremely well at Feyenoord and we have so many good reports. It will be interesting to see him play.”
