Juventus defender Stephan Lichtsteiner has insisted that his proposed move to Arsenal this summer is still not ready to be completed, even suggesting that there is still time for the plans to change.

He has won seven Serie A titles, four Coppa Italias and three Italian Super Cups at Juventus after joining the club from Lazio in 2011.

It has been claimed that the 34-year-old will agree a one-year deal to join the Gunners as he looks to bring some much-needed experience to the Arsenal defence ahead of next season.

"Stephan brings huge experience and leadership to our squad", said Emery, who has replaced long-serving boss Arsene Wenger at the helm of the club.

Chhetri is the country's leading scorer with 59 goals from 99 global caps, placing him third in the world's leading scorer's list. India, who thrashed Chinese Taipei 5-0 in their first outing, will now take on New Zealand on Thursday in the four-team tourney.

Lichtsteiner, who will wear the number 12 shirt and compete with the likes of Hector Bellerin for a place in Emery's side, is targeting a return to the Champions League with Arsenal - who have failed to qualify for the competition in the last two years.

'I think it's hard to see a club like Arsenal not playing in the CL if you see the players, club and stadium.

"There is a project to come back into the Champions League". The big objective is to come back on the highest level'. "I'm really positive that we will do great things".

The Gunners unveiled Lichtsteiner on social media with a full photoshoot of the newest member of the squad in the new home kit for 2018/19.
