The full team consists of: Petr Čech, Bernd Leno, Emiliano Martínez, Héctor Bellerín, Sead Kolašinac, Calum Chambers, Rob Holding, Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis, Dinos Mavropanos, Jordi Osei-Tutu, Mohamed Elneny, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Mattéo Guendouzi, Reiss Nelson, Emile Smith Rowe, Joe Willock, Aaron Ramsey, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mesut Özil, Alex Iwobi, Eddie Nketiah, Lucas Pérez, Alex Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Arsenal will be hoping to have a good preseason and push on for their tough first two games against last year's Champions Man City and Chelsea.
#1 Lucas Perez
The 29-year-old who joined Arsenal has had nothing but an underserved screwing over the Spaniard was brought in by Arsenal for 12.6 million pounds. At the time of only being 27 years old, there was great optimism about him due to his 17 goals and 10 assists he provided for Deportivo de La Coruña in his last fall season there.
When Lucas Perez did have chances in the Arsenal first team which was very limited did manage to score 7 goals and provided 5 assists in the 21 appearances he which he only played 948 minutes.
The next year after he was bought he was stripped of his number 9 shirt without being told and sent on loan to his former club Deportivo de La Coruña where he made 35 appearances and scored 8 goals and made 6 assists.
This year Lucas Perez will be hoping to impress Unai Emery in Singapore on their pre-season trip where they will play PSG, Atletico Madrid and Chelsea. His performances this pre-season will determine if he will have a future under Emery.
