Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi signs new long term contract

"They've let his contract run down to a year, and the power now goes to the player and the agent, because they can demand what they want".

Will Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp snatch the Arsenal star from under Unai Emery's nose?What's the rumour?

Unai Emery's first competitive match as manager comes against reigning champions Manchester City on August 12, and in his first season in England he will be expected to lead his new team back into the Champions League. "He's been playing well with the new coach and his team-mates; this season is going to be his season if he works for it". Peter Cech had a dismal season by his standards and at his age, he isn't getting any better.

Hudson-Odoi was soon involved at the start of the second half, trying his luck with a shot towards the far corner which Cech was able to gather.

Lucas Torreira was a relative unknown before the World Cup, where he starred for Uruguay as a defensive midfield shield.

The Gunners have signed five players in the summer transfer window to bolster Emery's options under Wenger.

The German defender's goal still looked like being enough to give Chelsea the win, but Lacazette tapped in at the far post after being set up by Reiss Nelson. Aubameyang had a great start to his career at the Emirates scoring 10 goals in 13 matches.

The early evidence suggests Aubameyang and Lacazette have already struck up a good understanding on the pitch and it is a similar story off it. Ozil and Mkhitaryan can swap their positions to befog the opposition.

"It feels so special, the first kit I had was Arsenal and long may I continue to represent them". There was a large section of the Arsenal fan base who wanted Wenger to exit in the face of deteriorating standards.

Emery may decide to pick up where Wenger left off and use Aubameyang on the left with Lacazette through the middle, but it is unlikely that he will use them as an old-fashioned centre-forward pairing.
