"I tried to clear my mind for myself".

Offering £87 million for an 18-year-old!

"I'm here to learn about this league and this country and to say to the Spanish people and the Spanish players to come here and to know about this football", he said.

Could he have listened? He could easily have had a couple of assists, and he may not be that far away from a first-team place either. Or has 'Silent' Stan Kroenke had a word?

He said: "It (leaving) is an option to be honest with you".

Eighty thousand fans turned out to watch the visiting Arsenal team take on A-League champion Sydney FC at Sydney's ANZ Stadium on Thursday night.

And adding one new, lethal-looking weapon.

This of course ensured Griezmann stayed rather than deciding to move to Manchester United, although Lacazette's arrival might just have helped him stay put. "We will see about my future but I am still an Arsenal player for the moment". With Monaco having stated that they will not even talk until £130m is on the table, Wenger has not been deterred.

It was a good performance from the Gunners, modelling their new dark third kit, in front of a crowd of 80,000.

Nelson was then creating chances as burst into the Sydney box before back heeling the ball into the path of Theo Walcott.

Arsenal's recent track record with teen prodigies is patchy at best, but Nelson's style suits Wenger's 3-4-3 formation. Lacazette knew where the space would be, he knew the angle that he had to create for Iwobi to play the right pass, and he knew the time that he had to arrive at that position. The irony is that Moshiri left the Londoners frustrated they wouldn't spend. "He was out for such a long time that I hope this will be a positive season for him".

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was also delighted to see his new man get off the mark while also commending the team's general performance.

"For now the most important thing is our pre-season and getting through the tour, training and getting fitness".
