Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can lead Arsenal's title hopes, says Kanu

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can lead Arsenal's title hopes, says Kanu

The 27-year-old played a crucial role in many intervals for Real Madrid in all three seasons of the Champions League as La Liga giants won the prestigious trophy thrice in a row.

Petr Cech says he still has not been told by Unai Emery whether he will be Arsenal's No. 1 goalkeeper this season. Emery has deflected questions about Ramsey's precarious contract situation at the club, the Welshman's deal expires in a year's time, rather focusing on pre-season preparations.

Kanu, who played for Arsenal between 1999 and 2004, is hoping that Aubameyang can build on in his first full season and spearhead the team in their pursuit of the championship.

Ramsey, who pulled out of Wednesday's International Champions Cup shoot-out victory over Chelsea with a calf problem, could miss the start of the Premier League season.

"I am very, very concentrated and my focus is thinking every day for the training, for the players. My opinion is professional and is in the interest of the team".

"He has one little muscular pain and we decided not to start him in the match because it's maybe a big risk for him", Emery said.

Ramsey is due to be out of contract next summer and could leave the Gunners for free unless he is sold before January or signs an extension.

China says United States ‘blackmail’ won’t work, warns of retaliation on tariffs
In July, the Trump administration introduced 25-percent tariffs on Chinese goods worth $34 billion. It would represent a ramping up of pressure over Washington's trade standoff with Beijing.

"This is one question for the club and for the player".

"It's different philosophies that have worked for them both of them and for us as players it's just about replicating what they want on the pitch".

"I think he [Emery] is a great coach, ” said Bellerin".

Granit Xhaka and Nacho Monreal could also see their first game time of the summer after joining up with the squad this week following the World Cup.

Emery has added five signings but Kanu believes the Gunners, sixth last season, must be patient.

"He's been signing new, good players".
