Jack Wilshere and Per Mertesacker take part in pre-season training with Arsenal

Jack Wilshere and Per Mertesacker looked happy to be getting back into the swing of things as the Arsenal duo took part in Arsenal’s latest pre-season training session on Wednesday.

The Arsenal squad were put through their paces at the Gunners’ London Colney training base as they continued their preparations for the forthcoming 2015-16 Premier League season.

Wilshere and Mertesacker were among the first-team stars in action as Arsene Wenger kept a close eye on proceedings at the Gunners’ training base.

Hector Bellerin and Yaya Sanogo were also pictured in the session as the Gunners look to get into shape ahead of the next campaign.

Arsenal take on Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley in August, before kicking off their Premier League campaign against West Ham United at Emirates Stadium the following week.

Here are some of the best pictures from Wednesday morning’s Arsenal pre-season training session at London Colney.
