Arsenal team news
The star man of Arsenal’s squad taking part in their tour of America is, of course, new signing Gabriel Jesus who has already hit the ground running in pre-season. The Brazilian, signed from Manchester City, will lead the line for Mikel Arteta, replacing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, both of whom have left in the past two transfer windows. Marquinhos, Fabio Vieira and Matt Turner have also been signed, but there’s an old face that Arsenal fans will also have a lot of interest in.
William Saliba spent last season on loan with Marseille in Ligue 1 and thrived, winning the division’s Young Player of the Year award. According to reports, Marseille were interested in making his move permanent, while other clubs were also interesting in luring Saliba away from Arsenal.
However, the Frenchman appears to have committed his future to the club, speak of his desire to fight for a spot in Arteta’s team.
“We [Saliba and Arteta] spoke a little bit on Monday and will speak more,” Saliba told the club’s official website.
“My plan is to work, to fight, to work with the team, to win everything that is possible. To grow more and to win everything and fight for this season.”
Everton team news
The biggest story of Everton’s transfer window was the sale of Richarlison to Tottenham Hotspur for £50m, one of six departures from Goodison Park. As things stand, the Toffees have only brought in one new face in James Tarkowski, but they are expected to do more business before the window shuts in September.
Tarkowski has been thrown straight into the Everton squad, travelling to the US, and could line up for his unofficial debut against Arsenal. However, not involved are the likes of Andy Lonergan and Jarrad Branthwaite, while Andros Townsend has travelled but will not play, continuing his rehab following a knee injury.
