Giroud claims Koscielny is 'very hurt' by current Arsenal situation

While it wasn't the most significant game for the Rapids, it will serve them good to give the starters some rest as well as giving the younger players experience against such a decorated team.

Goals from Bukayo Saka, James Olayinka and the Brazilian ensured Arsenal started their preseason tour on a winning note. Among them was 16-year-old Rapids defender Sebastian Anderson who won man of the match.

Unsurprisingly bet365 make Arsenal 4/9 (1.44) favourites to win this friendly match, whilst the draw is available at 7/2 (4.50).

'We need really that they will come with a big performance and also our target is to achieve three, four players to really improve our team and squad now.

Many Gunners supporters were dismayed to learn of their club captain's actions, but ex-Emirates ace Giroud has defended his compatriot and "good friend".

Kroenke, who began investing in the club in 2007 through his company Kroenke Sports Enterprises and took full ownership in 2018, also owns the Rapids as well as the NFL's Los Angeles Rams.

Prior to Arsenal's flight to America, the club confirmed that Laurent Koscielny had refused to travel.

Meanwhile, Juventus' Chief Financial Officer Giorgio Ricci said: "We are particularly proud of the partnership signed with Konami ".

"I'm sure the player realises that if someone's going to take him away from us, he'll expect clubs to pay the market value".

The 17-year-old made a run into the home team's danger zone after receiving a handsome pass from one of his teammates before converting the chance in the early minutes of the game.

He said (The Sun): "I feel very sad for him because he's a great person and the media wants to give a bad image of him".

Now it's one matter for him and the club. "I can't say more than that".

They have already had bids rejected for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha and Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney.

"We are being very, very demanding and we are first speaking about the possibility to sign very big, very expensive players".
