Mesut Ozil will link up with his Arsenal team-mates on their pre-season tour of Singapore following Germany’s early World Cup exit.

The German midfielder alongside Mohamed Elneny (Egypt) and Alex Iwobi (Nigeria) will join the 25-man squad for the International Champions Cup. New signings Bernd Leno, Sokratis and Matteo Guendouzi, are also part of the traveling team.

The Gunners squad leaves London on Sunday to play two matches in Singapore as part of the International Champions Cup that is played across three continents. They face Atletico Madrid on Thursday, July 26, Unai Emery’s former club Sevilla, and Paris Saint-Germain on July 28.

First-team players Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Hector Bellerin, Petr Cech, Calum Chambers, Rob Holding, Alexandre Lacazette, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Shkodran Mustafi and Aaron Ramsey will travel with the squad.

The notable absentees were Carl Jenkinson, Chuba Akpom, Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Joel Campbell and Krystian Bielik who may be surplus to requirements for the Spanish boss.
