  • Champions League absence may help Arsenal

Of course, this leaves a lot of interested clubs with a big problem, unwilling to spend more than £10m on a player who only made four league appearances last season.

Wenger has spent most of the summer fending off questions about the future of his prized asset.

"For the 273rd time, yes [he will stay after 31 August]", Wenger said.

"Every manager's nightmare is to lose a player in the last 24 hours or on the day of the window (closing) and you can't get a replacement in", he said. To great effect, I may add, as he was integral to that attack and had a huge part to play in the build up and whatever final product was delivered.

The 2017/18 Premier League season kicks off on Friday evening as Arsenal welcome Leicester City to the Emirates Stadium.

"It's a long time I didn't speak to Nasser, because it's certainly very busy to complete the transfer of Neymar", Wenger told a press conference at Arsenal's London Colney base. "I think if you read the French papers, they are on (Kylian) Mbappe's case to finish their transfer market".

Tropical Depression No. 8 Expected To Become Tropical Storm
With its current forecast track, the only impact to the United States will be some increased surf along the coast. A tropical depression in the western Atlantic is expected to become a tropical storm later today.


"To try to develop things that we normally don't do and in this moment there are so many teams playing with three in the back and wing-backs that probably sometimes we have to play that way".

Arsenal are anxious that star forward Alexis Sanchez could revive his attempts to force a move away from The Emirates this summer. "He is starting to understand what I want from him during games", Conte said.

Paris Saint-Germain are set to offer £80m for Alexis Sanchez despite Manchester City being Sanchez's first preference, according to Miguel Delaney of the Independent.

"We are here a lot today because of players like Sanchez and Ozil so I wanted them to be part of it. I think we have those assurances so I haven't got to worry about that".

This is it. After this first ever Premier League match which will hopefully come equipped with a goal, it will be all downhill from here.

"Yesterday I had the managers' meeting and was talking with the other managers in the other clubs".
