Germany manager Joachim Low has today named his provisional 30-man squad for this summer's World Cup in Brazil, which features four Premier League players including a trio of Arsenal stars and a representative from Chelsea.

Club record signing Mesut Ozil is joined by Gunners team-mates Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski in the German squad, while Andre Schurrle also made the cut following an impressive debut campaign at Stamford Bridge.

The 54-year-old has given the nod to several young players with Schalke teenagers Leon Goretzka and Max Meyer both being rewarded for fine seasons in the Bundesliga.

Borussia Dortmund wide-man Erik Durm and Freiburg defender Matthias Ginter also received call-ups, as well as former Everton starlet Shkodran Mustafi now playing in Italy at Sampdoria.

Veteran striker Miroslav Klose retains his place in the provisional squad but there is no room for Fiorentina forward Mario Gomez, who has spent the majority of the 2013/14 campaign sidelined by injury.

There is however a place for Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, despite the fact he has not played for almost six months, after tearing a cruciate knee ligament back in November.

Germany have been drawn in Group G for next month's World Cup alongside Ghana, Portugal and the United States, with each country holding aspirations of progressing to the knockout stages.

A full breakdown of Germany's provisional 30-man squad for the 2014 World Cup can be seen below:

Goalkeepers: Neuer, Weidenfeller, Zieler

Defenders: Boateng, Durm, Grosskreutz, Howedes, Hummels, Jansen, Lahm, Mertesacker, Mustafi, Schmelzer, Ginter

Midfielders/Forwards: Lars Bender, Draxler, Gotze, Goretzka, Hahn, Khedira, Klose, Kroos, Meyer, Müller, Ozil, Podolski, Reus, Schürrle, Schweinsteiger, Volland
