Unai Emery could axe Arsenal duo ahead of next season

Unai Emery could axe Arsenal duo ahead of next season

Arsenal will have Mesut Ozil available for their pre-season matches in Singapore after manager Unai Emery confirmed the Germany global will make an earlier than expected return to club duties following the World Cup.

"I'm really happy everybody played well so that's good".

The Gunners will be joined out in Asia by some more of their big names, including Germany global Mesut Ozil.

Following the shock early exit of Germany from the World Cup, playmaker Ozil has been on holiday and has yet to return to pre-season training, with Emery instead working with those Arsenal players not involved in Russian Federation 2018.

Pires, who played under Wenger for six years, told Sky Sports: "The best signing for me is Unai, the manager".

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that both the goalkeeper and the striker are facing uncertain futures at The Emirates when they return from their holidays after the World Cup. "He's coming with us to Singapore the first day".

"All the players are the same", Emery said via the Gunners' official website. Past year was hard for everyone, not only Mesut.

They say Emery has no interest in signing the midfielder this summer, claiming the new Gunners boss is keen to strengthen elsewhere. "He has a lot of experience and I hope for him and Arsenal that he is successful with the club".

"Many of the players have already been back in training since the start of July and took part in our first pre-season match, an 8-0 victory at Boreham Wood on Saturday".
