Mesut Ozil, Mohamed Elneny and Alex Iwobi will return from holiday in time to participate in Arsenal’s pre-season jaunt to Singapore.

The trio is currently on holiday after their respective disappointments at the World Cup. They’ve got another 10 days off before they report back to London Colney to be worked into a sweaty mess by the new coaching staff.

Unai Emery’s Gunners will take on Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint Germain on Thursday 26 July and Saturday 28 July at the Singapore National Stadium as part of the International Champions Cup.

In addition to the two matches, the first team will also step up their pre-season preparations on the training ground before embarking on a few meet-and-greets with local fans.

We’re guessing here, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the club launches the new Puma third kit out in Singapore as well.

Either side of the trip to the Far East, Unai Emery has his debut at Boreham Wood this Saturday and then friendlies with Chelsea in Dublin and Sevilla in Stockholm.

The Gunners start their Premier League campaign against Manchester City on Sunday 12 August, a match that will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
