Three Arsenal youth players have been called up for the latest round of England u17 fixtures.

A few months back, the Gunners had a number of young players represent their countries at the u17 World Cup, with Chris Willock, Kaylen Hinds and Stephy Mavididi all represented England.

The tournament was a disappointment for the Three Lions, but those players will moev on to the next age group now and three more younger Gunners are looking to nail their places in the new squad led by Steve Cooper.

Tolaji Bola, Marcus McGuane and Reiss Nelson have all been called up to play for their country at the beginning of February, as England prepare for the Algarve tournament ahead of Euro Elite Qualifying Round games in March.

At the beginning of February they will face their German and Dutch counterparts.

Nelson has already won three caps at this level, scoring four goals including a hat-trick against Armenia earlier this season. He’s only 16 but impressed in UEFA Youth League games earlier on this season and is highly thought of.

Fellow 16-year-old McGuane made his debut for Arsenal u21s on Friday and is yet to feature for England u17s, though he has played three games at this level for Ireland.

Tolaji Bola is also hoping to win his first England u17 cap, having represented the nation at u16 level. A 17-year-old defender, Bola is impressing during another season with the Arsenal u18 team.
