Arsene Wenger and his 25-man Arsenal squad are officially on their pre-season tour after jetting off to Australia on Sunday evening.
- Arsenal haven’t been to Australia for 40 years
- Gunners play four pre-season matches
- Arsenal announce 25-man squad for pre-season tour
The club have released a video of the Arsenal squad boarding their own plane down under showing what the lads get up to when they’ve got a whole day up in the air to kill.
Interestingly, the video heavily features an up-beat Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who’s been linked with a move to Liverpool this summer.
We also catch a brief glimpse of new left-back, Sead Kolasinac, and an even briefer look at Arsenal’s record signing, Alexandre Lacazette.
Arsenal face Sydney FC on 13 July and Western Sydney Wanderers on 15 July. Both pre-season clashes kick off at 8pm local time (11am UK time) at the Allianz Stadium a.k.a Sydney Football Stadium.
The Gunners will then move on to China, where they’ll play Bayern Munich in Shanghai on Wednesday July 19 and then Chelsea in the Bird’s Nest Stadium, Beijing, on Saturday July 22.
