London calling for Wenger's Britons

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger feels the likes of England duo Jack Wilshere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Wales captain Aaron Ramsey can provide a "British core" around which to build Arsenal's next generation.

Having seen captain Robin van Persie and midfielder Alex Song leave Emirates Stadium in recent weeks, the Arsenal manager admits it has left him having to "start again" in moulding a squad capable of challenging for the top honours once more. Wenger, though, feels having so many young players who have been schooled domestically can make a big difference.

"Before we had young players like [Cesc] Fabregas and [Samir] Nasri. Now for the first time we have some good young British players in the group - [Kieran] Gibbs, [Aaron] Ramsey, Wilshere, [Carl] Jenkinson, Chamberlain. This time we have an English core, a British core of players of similar qualities which we want to build on."
