Striker Welbeck has a year remaining on his deal and Arsenal are open to selling him rather than risk him leaving for nothing next summer, with a number of Premier League clubs monitoring the situation.

Arsenal's director of high performance, Darren Burgess, has provided an insight into Arsenal's training in pre-season.

"I'm not convinced they have the squad to make a top-four challenge, but they will pick up plenty of points at the Emirates although they must show they have the defensive capabilities to compete with the best on the road". "The Arsenal squad is not worse than those of the other teams".

Lehmann also gave a surprising compliment to Spurs by comparing them to the youthful Arsenal sides that he was a part of between 2003 and 2008. "Regardless, I must admit: They remind me a bit of the "old" Arsenal I played in. But it's must if you want to be a big side".

The Gunners have also spent £20m on Bayer Leverkusen and Germany goalkeeper Bernd Leno to provide Petr Cech and David Ospina with stiff competition.

Speaking at an interactive session in New Delhi , Chopra said, "My personal life is not for public consumption". Her first day of shooting is this Thursday (9 August).

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi has revealed that he has to be more professional to avoid the January party mistake. He does that - good.

While optimism is growing at Anfield, the same can not be said at last season's runners-up Manchester United who kick off the new season on Friday at home to Leicester City with a squad that is under-cooked, according to manager Jose Mourinho.

The former Germany worldwide also questioned Liverpool's decision to spend £65 million on Alisson, saying the Brazil goalkeeper hasn't proven that he's among the world's best. "He has not given any proof of it", Lehmann was outright to analyze the custodian.

The 22-year-old played 90 minutes in that game and was heavily criticised after photos emerged showing him in a house party before the match.
