The Evening Standard are reporting that the Besiktas defender could arrive for a fee of £26.9m as Emery looks to sure up his defence before the start of the new Premier League season. Usually, Chelsea have a successful first year under a new sporting leadership.

Arsenal appointed Unai Emery as the new manager of the gunners in May and the Spanish global has already started making a number of changes at a club which has been under the management of Arsene Wenger for two decades.

It is quite clear that Arsenal's new manager Unai Emery wants Aaron Ramsey to stay at the club but the player shouldn't use that to ask for big demands.

"We conceded a ridiculous number of goals, which Arsenal hadn't done in maybe 35 years, so one thing [Emery] has been working on is making the team better organised in that area".

Lehmann also gave a surprising compliment to Spurs by comparing them to the youthful Arsenal sides that he was a part of between 2003 and 2008. The 46-year-old has won three UEFA Europa League titles with Sevilla, a French Ligue 1 trophy and two French League Cups with Paris Saint-Germain, and has been known for his high-pressing, intensive style of play, which Arsenal have been missing during the past few underwhelming seasons. "Regardless, I must admit: They remind me a bit of the "old" Arsenal I played in".

That gutsy display against the eventual bronze medalists is thought to have gained manager Akira Nishino more favour in his homeland, but the Japan FA would still prefer to bring in Wenger.

Israel fired artillery in the Gaza strip has died
Israel says Hamas, which rules Gaza , is using the protests as cover to carry out cross-border attacks. Israel has said they only opened fire in self-defence or on people trying to infiltrate its territory.

Ospina is surplus to requirements at Arsenal after Bernd Leno was signed from Bayer Leverkusen. "The question is: Can he show more than he did in the past?" He must take more risks and continue his development.

But how have Arsenal been preparing for the new season?

The former Germany worldwide also questioned Liverpool's decision to spend £65 million on Alisson, saying the Brazil goalkeeper hasn't proven that he's among the world's best.

"Alisson is certainly a good man, but not a world-class keeper you'd expect for this price".

"I don't see that they've improved loads".

"I am always interested to see whether those players can actually become world class".
