Photo: Alexandre Lacazette display skills in debut Arsenal training

Arsenal arrived Sydney for their pre-season tour exuding so much confidence and they have begun preparations in earnest ahead of the upcoming season.

Arsenal new signing Alexandre Lacazette made his Arsenal training debut with his new teammates after completing a Club record deal from Lyon.

After a long-standing interest in the French striker, Lacazette completed a  £52m move to Arsenal and signed a five-year contract. His deal eclipsed the amount Arsenal paid for Mesut Ozil in the summer of 2013 when he joined from Real Madrid.

Lacazette is expected to slot into the first team of Arsenal as the lead attack. He will be flanked by Alexis Sanchez with Mesut Ozil expected to be feed him with some through balls.

The Gunners are due to play Sydney FC on Thursday, and Lacazette is expected to make his Arsenal debut on the same day as confirmed by Arsene Wenger.

There are quite a number of Arsenal’s first team players on the tour. Mesut Ozil, Granit Xhaka, Shkodran Mustafi and even new signing Sead Kolasinac have all be working hard in training.

We bring you some of the pictures of the squad members as they lock horns to impress Arsene Wenger in training.
