With several first-teamers away on international duty with their respective nations, manager Unai Emery invited Omole to train with the first team at London Colney on Wednesday morning.

Some of the Arsenal stars in attendance at the workout includes : Héctor Bellerín, Laurent Koscielny, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Mesut özil, Nacho Monreal, Shkodran Mustafi and Sead Kolašinac.

Described as a versatile defender, Omole joined Arsenal's Hale End Academy in 2014 and rose through the ranks before he was promoted to the U23 side.

Omole can be deployed as a left back, central defender and defensive midfielder.
