Big blow – Arsene Wenger at loggerhead with Arsenal board

As part of preparation for the next season, Arsenal have already lined up their budget for the transfer market and their plan for the players tour before the season fully commences.

Per report,

“Arsenal are deliberating on whether they should extend next season’s pre-season tour of Australia by going to Asia, although Arsene Wenger has previously voiced his dislike of long-haul summer tours.

Visits to China and India are being contemplated by club chiefs with a friendly meeting in China expected to be highly beneficial, financially.

The Gunners have already organised encounters with Sydney FC and Sydney Wanderers, the first is scheduled for July 13 and the following match will take place four days later, as reported by the Daily Mail.


Like the majority of other Premier League clubs, Arsenal have toured the globe throughout previous summers while cashing in on their widespread popularity.

Arsenal travelled to America over the summer to participate in the 2016 MLS All-Star game and later took on Chivas.

Arsene Wenger’s side got off to a shaky start in the league this term, losing 4-3 to Liverpool at home and drawing 0-0 with Leicester City, but their pre-season adventures cannot be blamed for that.

Their squad lacked strength because of the Euro 2016 finals and their inactivity during the transfer window, but they then won their subsequent six games following the arrival of Shkodran Mustafi and the return of both Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny.”
