Holding could captain Arsenal with Koscielny exit

Why William Saliba has chosen Arsenal over Tottenham in £36m deal

Why William Saliba has chosen Arsenal over Tottenham in £36m deal

We need his performances as a centre back.

UNAI Emery has given tired Arsenal fans just the boost they needed by insisting that the club are targeting "very big, very expensive" deals in the transfer market.

Arsenal face Lyon in the Emirates Cup on Sunday July 28 and French side Angers three days later.

The Club failed to finish in the top 4 of the premier league.

Unai Emery is undoubtedly having a really tough summer transfer window especially with a limited transfer budget and it looks like even Chelsea are doing better than them despite having a transfer ban imposed on them.

The only other English senior players in the squad are Calum Chambers, who spent last season on loan at Fulham, and fringe right-back Carl Jenkinson.

Arsenal were forced to change the structure of their £27m offer, and increase the guaranteed amount in the package, to fend off Spurs's attempt to hijack the move.

Man sets himself on fire outside Japanese embassy in Seoul
Meanwhile, Seoul criticized the new export rules, calling them "retaliation" by Japan over the wartime labor issue. Meanwhile, an elderly man set himself alight in a auto that was parked outside the Japanese Embassy in Seoul.

Emery has already seen that group dismantled.

So it is now clear that Koscielny has rebelled because he wants to leave the club and doesn't want to respect his contract, and it is also obvious that Emery wanted him to stay for his final year.

The undeterred Gunners boss, though, will construct another leadership group ahead of the new season. We have to work well together on the pitch, out of the pitch and we have to work together, all of the players.

Emery wants to ensure that one of his captains is English, however, which could open the door for Holding. They started one day being captain when they were young.

"We have very good players and very good young players who can progress to take and get big performances with us".

Xhaka is now the captain of his nation Switzerland, who now sit 9th in the FIFA World Rankings.

After more than six months on the sidelines, Arsenal's head coach Unai Emery has confirmed that Rob Holding has started light training and this gives gooners hope of seeing him available for selection atleast at the end of August.
