Arsenal have just finished their Dubai warm weather training camp. This provided 23 young Arsenal players, including some first team players, to get in some extra training during the international break and also play in a friendly against Al-Nasr Dubai SC, with the match ending with a 3-2 win for the Gunners.

The squad did include some first team players including Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette, but 12 of the 23 players on the training camp were under the age of 23.

So here is a look at 5 Arsenal players that you may not know much about and who are they.

#5 Arthur Okonwo

The 17 year old goalkeeper has been at the club since the age of seven and has not looked back. He is currently part of the Under-18 squad and has impressed hugely.

Due to his impressive form, the English stopper was recently handed his first professional contract.This is good news for Arsenal because he had considered leaving, with both Celtic and RB Leipzig being interested in the young goalkeeper. He did not feature in the match in Dubai but he looks like he may have a bright future ahead of him.

#4 Ben Sheaf

The 21 year old currently plays for Arsenal Under-23s. However, it seems that his time at Arsenal may nearly be up. He has only ever played one minute of professional football for Arsenal, and that was last season in the Europa League.

Since then he has done very little in terms of professional football. Sheaf did not feature in the match in Dubai, perhaps suggesting that Unai Emery does not think very highly of him. My predidction is that either he will get released by Arsenal in the summer or he will be sold.
