Arsenal Coach Mikel Arteta has confirmed his squad for the Europa League knockout stages, MySportDab reports.
Arteta has included January signings Cedric Soares and Pablo Mari to their squad.
Mari and Soares joined Arsenal on loan and head coach Mikel Arteta is hopeful they can provide some extra quality in defence.
With the Gunners failing in the Premier League, the Europa League appears to be their best chance of playing in the Champions League next season.
Due to this, Arteta has selected his strongest possible squad for the tournament.
understands UEFA rules allow clubs to add a maximum of three new signings to their squad and Arsenal have registered Soares and Mari.
They also included Eddie Nketiah, who returned to the club in January after his loan at Leeds United.
Arsenal play Olympiacos on February 20 with the first leg away in Greece and the second leg at the Emirates.
A home Premier League match against Everton is in between the two European games.
Arsenal’s top scorer in Europe this season is Gabriel Martinelli, with three goals in the group stages.
