But just as the 20-year-old was facing redundancy Arsenal signed the youngster in the January transfer window.

Lacazette then flew with his new teammates on their preseason tour of Australia on Tuesday, and pulled on the Arsenal shirt as a second-half substitute in their 2-0 win over Sydney FC on Thursday.

While Arsenal finished fifth in the league last season, Mourinho claims they were the third most successful in England because they won the FA Cup.

We're honoured as the football club that represents Western Sydney to be playing our first ever global friendly match against Arsenal.

Next season will be equally trying, with the Gunners travelling to arch nemesis Stoke City, Liverpool and Chelsea in the first few games and their recent record suggest that they are more likely to fall short that come out with the goods.

As mentioned, Bilic doesn't need another injury-prone attacker but it is worth noting that he is at Arsenal, whose players always find ways to get injured, and perhaps his injury woes is more about Wenger's training sessions than it is about him.

Liverpool and Chelsea have just 10 days in which to complete a potential deal if either wants to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer.

"I think he's copped a bit of harsh criticism over the last couple of years but two years ago he helped the Wanderers to a grand final as No.1 'keeper".

Arsene Wenger's side took just four minutes to open the scoring, with Mertesacker hooking the ball home from close range with his back to goal from a Mesut Ozil corner.

"Obviously we had that little drought in the middle of the season, hopefully we've already seen what we can improve on", added Iwobi.

"They are top players to be fair", he said.

The striker has fired 98 goals in 226 appearances for the north London club since his arrival from Montpellier in 2012. I hope Alexis stays but I don't know what the status is, to be honest. Arsenal played with goal throughout as Özil and Theo Walcott stretched Sydney's defence but struggled with the the final ball.

However, the 30-year-old's nervousness about his future has alerted a host of clubs, with Everton, West Ham, Marseille and AC Milan all interested, according to the report in the Mirror.
