And the sun has been out in Germany as the Gunners squad trained in preparation.

There were some new faces in the camp including Gabriel Jesus, who was only announced as an Arsenal player on Monday.

His compatriot and fellow summer signing Marquinhos is also enjoying his first pre-season as a Gooner and was spotted juggling a ball with his head.

Nuno Tavares also posed for a photo alongside Emile Smith Rowe but fellow Hale End graduate Bukayo Saka was absent.

The winger is one of several players who were called up for international duty last month who have yet to return to training.

Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsdale were also missing with new signing Matt Turner being tested out in goal.

Several youngsters have joined the first-team for the trip to Germany however and it will be interesting to see if they are included on the pre-season tour of the US.

At the end of the session some players signed t-shirts and footballs for a small group of fans who came to watch.
