Mesut Ozil has named the Arsenal young stars who impressed him during their pre-season tour to the USA.

The German has hailed Joe Willock, Eddie Nketiah, Reiss Nelson and Emile Smith Rowe.

Despite Ozil’s and Aubameyang’s efforts it was the young guns who stole the show.

He said: “Right now we have a lot of young players and yesterday Joe Willock plays with us, he really showed his quality and Eddie everyone knows Eddie in the team.

“He is fighting hard and wants to help us and Reiss. He had a lot of experience in Germany. He played very well during the season over there so those people, those kind of players, especially young players will help us a lot.

“Don’t forget Emile. He is a little bit injured so he is coming back, we know his quality as well. At Arsenal I think we are lucky to have those young players.”

Arsenal and Fiorentina face off on Saturday as both teams prepare for the 2019/20 season.
