Facing the derby rivals Chelsea in a pre-season match in the International Champions Cup in Dublin late night on Wednesday, Arsenal picked up a 6-5 win on penalties.

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery said he is unsure if Aaron Ramsey will sign a new contract but again called on the midfielder to stay at the club.

Arsenal youngster Emile Smith Rowe, meanwhile, is targeting Premier League football after signing a new long-term deal at the Emirates.

The Gunners have been linked with the French global for a number of weeks after reports reached them that the 21-year-old is "unsettled" by Malcom's arrival at the Camp Nou.

"There's a little bit of interest from Liverpool, I understand", McGarry told the Transfer Window podcast.

"For the new manager it's going to be a very big challenge; the fans want them to perform in the league in his first year, which is always hard for a new coach". "But I'm waiting for the medical analysis and I don't think it will be a big problem".

The fire, which started July 23 in Shasta County, continues burning and has destroyed almost 1,000 homes. Brown said the trend would likely worsen if forecasts by climate scientists come to pass.

The 26-year-old has never really made the grade since signing two years ago from Valencia for £35m, and Arsenal boss Emery is willing to listen to offers now that he has Sokratis Papastaphopoulos, Rob Holding and Konstantinos Mavropanos.

Chelsea will hope to bounce back when they play Manchester City in the Community Shield on Sunday, with Arsenal facing Lazio in their final pre-season friendly a day earlier.

"Ramsey's with us. The contract is a question for the club and for the player".

"At the moment, I'm very happy with the players that are here with us", Emery said.

"My opinion is clear, I want him to be with us".

After watching Alexis Sanchez and Jack Wilshere run down their contract and ultimately leave the club, Gooners are concerned Ramsey will do the same.
