Concern for Arsenal as Alexandre Lacazette limps out of Lyon clash

Three ways Arsenal could line up with new boy Dani Ceballos

Arsenal found out just how deadly a guy who played some great stuff in the SPFL can do to them.

"We are thinking it's not important, he decided with the doctor & with me that it is better to take no more risk". We think it will be good for him to be in a less demanding league to continue his formative period, so we'll have a top defender for a decade.

Dani Ceballos became Arsenal's second major signing of the summer transfer window after completing a season long loan move from Real Madrid on Thursday afternoon.

"He's a friend of mine off the field and we've played together for the national team".

The signing of William Saliba from St Etienne was confirmed just hours after Ceballos but the 18-year-old France youth worldwide will spend the next season back on loan at the Ligue 1 outfit.

The game finished 2-1 after Moussa bagged his brace in the Emirates Cup.

The second half was more of the same to begin with, albeit with less intensity as various substitutions took the sting out of the game.

Moussa Dembele headed in Memphis Depay's cross, before finishing coolly past Bernd Leno. Unfortunately for the Brazilian full-back, he had a hard game and it looks unlikely that he will be able to adequately fill the monumental void left by Mendy at the Groupama Stadium.

Khedira had a hard time in Turin last season and does not appear to be in the plans of new Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri.

Aubameyang was moved in from the left to lead the line upon Lacazette's withdrawal, and looked in his element in his natural position throughout the first half. Although he is approaching the twilight years of his career, his big-game know-how would prove useful, and if a deal is in the offing, it could be a smart, low-priced acquisition from the club.

And it was his rifled delivery which opened the scoring after he clinically picked out Aubameyang, who only had to guide the cross into the back of the net, such was the force and conviction with which Mkhitaryan put on the ball.
