Arsenal came so close to finally capturing their first Premier League title once again this season, having been pipped to the title by Manchester City in the final game of the campaign.

That will have hurt everyone associated with the Gunners, especially as it looked as though they had a very good chance of being victorious. The loss against Aston Villa at home being the one result that arguably destroyed the chance of jubilation in North London.

However, while everyone will be focused and channel that disappointment into next year’s efforts, there will be some who may want to channel that anger in Germany later this summer.

Arsenal set to have various players represent them at Euro 2024

Unsurprisingly, given the quality of the players that Mikel Arteta has available at the Emirates Stadium, a vast number of individuals have been called up to play for their nations at the upcoming 2024 European Championships.

The tournament may give those individuals the opportunity to kick a ball in vain and look to try and get their hand on some silverware, albeit at the national team level. Should that happen, it could have a positive knock-on effect in the capital, as it may give them even more hunger and desire to finally end the club’s two-decade-long drought in terms of England’s biggest footballing prize.

The Gunners could have up to 11 players be named across nine nations to compete this summer…

England: Aaron Ramsdale, Declan Rice and Bukayo Saka

Arsenal will likely have three players in the England squad as they look to avenge their penalty shootout heartache of three years ago when they were beaten by Italy in the final at Wembley. Indeed, many are expecting England to do so, as they have been priced as the favourites in the betting EURO 2024 outright market, with a price of 3/1.

Saka and Rice are likely to have an important role in Gareth Southgate’s side as they have continued to be integral figures. Their form for Arsenal throughout the season shouldn’t make their selection any harder, either, as they have both been solid. Ramsdale’s place is a little more up for debate, as he will likely have to have the same role as he did for his club for his country. He will likely be behind Jordan Pickford in the pecking order.

France: William Saliba

Saliba is another player who had a solid season this year, and his performances have earned him a place in the provisional France squad. He was exceptional at the back for the club, and although there is plenty of talent in the national team, it’d be surprising if he weren’t involved.

Les Bleus will want their best players, especially as they are considered the main contenders to challenge England. Saliba has continued to show signs of quality and maturity as he has developed, making him an easy selection for Didier Deschamps.

Germany: Kai Havertz

Havertz has really come into his own towards the end of the season, as Arteta appears to have found a position that works for him. Germany will have been keep tabs on a player that they have loved ever since he first broke into football at Bayer Leverkusen, and that’s unlikely to change now.

He could be deployed as a false nine and with the tournament on home soil, he may have additional motivation in trying to help the Germans get back to their best after a few poor showings in major competitions recently.

Spain: David Raya

Raya is likely to complete a permanent transfer to Arsenal this summer following his successful loan move. He has already been rewarded with a place in the Spain national team for the upcoming Euros.

It’ll be between him, Unai Simon (Athletic Bilbao) and Alex Remiro (Real Sociedad) for a place between the sticks. Still, after winning the Golden Glove in the Premier League, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he were the chosen one.

Which other players from Arsenal will be at 2024 Euros?

Leandro Trossard is another player who has been exceptional for the Gunners when needed. He’ll likely be a key part of the Belgium national team. Jorginho will also be an influential leader within the Italy team as they look to retain their title.

Kieran Tierney may appear for Scotland after a loan spell away from the club, with Oleksandr Zinchenko (Ukraine) and Jakub Kiwior (Poland) also expected to be in Germany for the upcoming competition.
