Mesut Ozil part of Unai Emery's plans for Far East tour

Unai Emery has confirmed that Mesut Ozil will be part of his squad for the upcoming tour of Asia.

The 29-year-old has yet to link up with his teammates since Germany were dumped out of the World Cup in the group stage.

Ozil will play a part in the games with Atletico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea in the Far East, however, as will Egypt midfielder Mohamed Elneny and Nigeria forward Alex Iwobi following their prolonged breaks.

"All the players are the same," Emery told Arsenal's official website. "They have the same holidays. I know Iwobi, Elneny and Mesut Ozil. He's coming with us to Singapore the first day."

Aaron Ramsey contract talks 'still ongoing'

Aaron Ramsey remains locked in discussions with the club over a new contract, according to a report.

The Gunners' longest-serving player is due to become a free agent in less than 12 months' time after being allowed to run down his existing terms.

Unai Emery has admitted that he is keen to secure Ramsey's services for the long term, with the negotiations now taking priority following the conclusion of Arsenal's transfer business.

Sky Sports News claims that talks will continue until an agreement can be reached with the Wales international, who has spent the past decade in North London.

Ramsey, used 32 times in all competitions under Arsene Wenger last season, was recently linked with a surprise move to Lazio.

Unai Emery has expressed his eagerness to help Mesut Ozil rediscover his form.

Unai Emery has expressed his eagerness to help Mesut Ozil rediscover his form.
The Germany midfielder, who joined the Gunners from Real Madrid in 2013, endured a difficult campaign last term for club and country.


Arsenal finished a lowly sixth in the Premier League table last season, while Ozil's troubles continued at the World Cup as his underperforming nation finished bottom of Group F in Russia.


"We are here to help every player," Emery told Sky Sports News when asked how he will 'fix' Ozil's form. "For me it's the same for one player as it is for 25 players, to help them. For us Mesut is a very important player.


"We want to help to be well, fine with us. The national team didn't get the results they wanted but today he is on holiday and I want him to relax good and I want, when he comes back with us, to start with a good mentality.

"I want to work with him with a new way and with an ambition to continue with this quality and help with this quality, getting better with the team. I think last year was a difficult year for all, not only for Mesut. I think it is for the team. They finished sixth in the Premier League - not the position we want."


Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger also expressed concern over the 29-year-old's form for Germany at the World Cup, deeming the player "not the real Ozil I know".

Image result for kingsley komUnai Emery is hoping to sign Kingsley Coman from Bayern Munich in a £44m deal, according to a report.

The 22-year-old, who has also previously represented Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus, signed a long-term deal with the German giants last year following two seasons on loan.

Coman missed out on France's World Cup squad due to an ankle ligament injury that ruled him out for almost three months last season.

Despite the winger playing an important role for Bayern in their latest title success, featuring 22 times prior to his layoff, BeIN Sports suggests that the Bundesliga outfit may be willing to sell.

Gunners boss Emery recently hinted that he is hoping to bring in one more big-name player in attack after so far strengthening at the back and in midfield.

Lucas Perez is reportedly willing to bide his time and fight for regular football at the Emirates Stadium next season.

The 29-year-old is back in North London after spending the 2017-18 campaign on loan in his native Spain with Deportivo La Coruna.

Perez was involved for Arsenal in their first summer friendly, an 8-0 win over Boreham Wood, and is now expected to travel to the Far East for the next part of pre-season.

According to Spanish outlet El Desmarque, the former PAOK ace is not put off by competition from the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi, and he intends to remain at the club next season.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery knows Perez from their time in La Liga, with the forward spending the 2014-15 campaign with Deportivo prior to joining the Gunners in a £17m move.

Thierry Henry has announced that he is ending his three-year spell with Sky Sports.

The Arsenal legend has been combining his media commitments with his role as assistant to Belgium boss Roberto Martinez and has just spent the last month-and-a-half at the World Cup.

The Frenchman's experience in Russia has seemingly led to the 40-year-old opting to focus more time on the training pitch, resulting in his exit from the broadcaster.

Calum Chambers has said that he is confident he "can grow to enjoy" the new position given to him by Unai Emery.

The 23-year-old defender was pushed into a more advanced central-midfield role for the Gunners' opening pre-season match at the weekend.

Chambers, awarded a new long-term contract by Emery earlier this summer, performed well during his time on the field as Arsenal ran out 8-0 winners against the non-league side.

Sevilla: 'Steven N'Zonzi will only leave for £35m'

Sevilla's director of football Joaquin Caparros has indicated that the club will not sell Steven N'Zonzi for anything less than £35m.

N'Zonzi has spent the last three years with the Spanish side, scoring eight goals in 135 outings in all competitions, and the Frenchman's form has resulted in interest from a number of top European clubs.
