Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, has called-up Nigerian-eligible left-back, Tolaji Bola, to train with his team again ahead of their weekend Premier League game.

The versatile England youth international was spotted amongst the senior sides as they trained openly at the emirates stadium today.

Bolaji, who has trained with the first team on multiple occasions in the last few weeks, continues to push for a place in the matchday squad.

The 21-year-old last made the matchday squad against Nottingham Forest in the League Cup in September 2019 but was an unused substitute.

Ahead of Sunday's trip to the Turf Moor, the Gunners are without Calum Chambers, Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolašinac through injury, while Brazilian star, David Luiz, is suspended and Shkodran Mustafi is a doubt after suffering an ankle injury against Bournemouth.

Meanwhile, another Arsenal player of Nigerian descent, Bukayo Saka, has been nominated for the club's Player of the Month for January 2020 alongside Lucas Torreira, Gabriel Martinelli and Granit Xhaka.
