The Arsenal squad fly out to Jakarta on Thursday for the first leg of the Asia Tour 2013 - and the final travelling party has been confirmed.

Youngsters Chuba Akpom, Serge Gnabry, Kris Olsson and Gedion Zelalem have been included in the 24-man group for the matches in Indonesia, Vietnam and Japan.

However, Santi Cazorla and Nacho Monreal will sit out the tour due to their involvement in the Confederations Cup, while Yaya Sanogo is still with France at the Under-20 World Cup.

Thomas Vermaelen will miss the tour in order so he can receive treatment on a back injury, while Gervinho was not due to fly out due to sickness.
