Why Arsenal have not named Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah in their Europa League squad

Arsenal have announced their squad for the Europa League.

There are plenty of familiar faces in the squad, although no room for Mesut Ozil.

The attacking midfielder is not the only notable absentee from the list of names, however, with Bukayo Saka also missing.

Despite winning his first England call-up, Saka has not been named on the Gunners’ Europa League squad list.

Yet clubs have only submitted a List A squad for the Europa League.

Locally trained means players that have been trained by their club or another club in the same nation for at least three years between the age of 15 and 21.

Four of these players must have been trained at the club they are being registered for.

Younger players, however, do not need to be registered on List A.
